Johannes Höhne, Michael Tangermann, Mathias Baumert
2014 PLoS ONE  
Aiming for a maximally user-friendly spelling interface, this study introduces a novel auditory paradigm: "CharStreamer".  ...  In contrast to most visual BCI approaches which use eventrelated potentials (ERP) of the electroencephalogram, auditory BCI systems are challenged with ERP responses, which are less class-discriminant  ...  Acknowledgments The authors gratefully acknowledge Martijn Schreuder and Sven Dahne for fruitful discussions.
