Motor imagery (MI)-based brain-computer interface (BCI) systems have shown promising advances for lower limb motor rehabilitation. The purpose of this study was to develop an MI-based BCI for the actions of standing and sitting. Thirty-two healthy subjects participated in the study using 17 active EEG electrodes. We used a combination of the filter...

We implement a theoretical analysis of the amplitude intensity associated to tensorial and non-tensorial polarization modes generated by binary systems at their inspiral stage, within the alternative theories of gravity of Brans Dicke, Rosen, and Lightman Lee. This study is performed without making an explicit use of the Transverse Traceless gauge...
Article
Background A widely used paradigm for brain-computer interfaces (BCI) is based on the detection of event-related (des)synchronization (ERD/S) in response to hand motor imagery (MI) tasks. The common spatial pattern (CSP) has been recognized as a powerful algorithm to design spatial filters for ERD/ERS detection. However, a limitation of CSP focus o...
Chapter
Brain–computer interfaces, also known as BCIs, are systems that analyze brain signals and translate them into meaningful information in real-time. These interfaces provide an alternative communication channel to manipulate a computer or a robotic device by modulating the neural activity. This chapter describes a general-purpose P300-based BCI devel...

We present a follow-up method based on supervised machine learning (ML) to improve the performance in the search of gravitational wave (GW) burts from core-collapse supernovae (CCSNe) using the coherent WaveBurst (cWB) pipeline. The ML model discriminates noise from signal events using as features a set of reconstruction parameters provided by cWB....

We performed a detailed analysis of the detectability of a wide range of gravitational waves derived from core-collapse supernova simulations using gravitational-wave detector noise scaled to the sensitivity of the upcoming fourth and fifth observing runs of the Advanced LIGO, Advanced Virgo, and KAGRA. We use the coherent WaveBurst algorithm, whic...

We present the first results from an all-sky all-frequency (ASAF) search for an anisotropic stochastic gravitational-wave background using the data from the first three observing runs of the Advanced LIGO and Advanced Virgo detectors.

Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) is one of the most aggressive neurodegenerative diseases and is now recognized as a multisystem network disorder with impaired connectivity. Further research for the understanding of the nature of its cognitive affections is necessary to monitor and detect the disease, so this work provides insight into the neura...

Full-text available
We report on an all-sky search for continuous gravitational waves in the frequency band 20–2000 Hz and with a frequency time derivative in the range of [−1.0, +0.1] × 10⁻⁸ Hz/s. Such a signal could be produced by a nearby, spinning and slightly nonaxisymmetric isolated neutron star in our Galaxy. This search uses the LIGO data from the first six mo...
Chapter
Feature extraction is the pattern recognition's stage in which the main signal characteristics must be distinguished from other additional or unwanted information. Also, it must be achieved keeping in mind the computing of a compact and interpretative resulting dataset from the original raw signals. Commonly, it takes place between the pre-processi...

After the detection of gravitational waves from compact binary coalescences, the search for transient gravitational-wave signals with less well-defined waveforms for which matched filtering is not well-suited is one of the frontiers for gravitational-wave astronomy. Broadly classified into "short" $ \lesssim 1~$\,s and "long" $ \gtrsim 1~$\,s durat...

Currently, one of the challenges in EEG-based brain-computer interfaces (BCI) for neurorehabilitation is the recognition of the intention to perform different movements from the same limb.
