Abstract: A comparative evaluation is performed on two databases using three feature extraction techniques and five classification methods for a motor imagery paradigm based on Mu rhythm. In order to extract the features from electroencephalographic signals, three methods are proposed: independent component analysis, Itakura distance and phase synchronization. The last one consists of: phase locking value, phase lag index and weighted phase lag index. The classification of the extracted features is performed using linear discriminant analysis, quadratic discriminant analysis, Mahalanobis distance based on classifier, the k-nearest neighbors and support vector machine. The aim of this comparison is to evaluate which feature extraction method and which classifier is more appropriate in a motor brain computer interface paradigm. The results suggest that the effectiveness of the feature extraction method depends on the classification method used.
