Abstract: In recent years, a vast research is concentrated towards the development of electroencephalography (EEG) based human computer interface in order to enhance the quality of life for medically as well as non-medical applications. Industry and community of research have been attracted by wireless EEG reading devices and they are easily available in the market. Such technology can be incorporated into psychology, anesthesiology, and for real-time patients monitoring. A brain computer interface (BCI) is a direct communication channel between the human brain and the digital computer. In this paper, we present a review on characteristics and specification of EEG-based human computer interfaces for real-time applications using wearable or wireless EEG devices.

Keywords: brain computer interface; BCI; single electrode EEG; emotion behaviour analysis; healthcare monitoring.
