Feature Extraction and Classification of Four-Class Motor Imagery Signals Based on LCD and CSP
Abstract— The common spatial pattern (CSP) can effectively extract the spatial information of motor
imagery (MI) signals, but ignores time and frequency domain information of EEG signals. In order to
overcome this problem, a new method is proposed in this paper, which combines the CSP method with the
time-frequency analysis method Local Characteristic-scale Decomposition (LCD) to extract the timefrequency
information and improve the classification accuracy. The effectiveness of the algorithm was
verified by conducting experiments with the BCI competition dataset. The results show that the proposed
method improves the recognition rate of MI signals, and has potential for the application of portable BCI
systems in rehabilitation field.
