The problem with trying to use brain waves for
control purposes is that there are much larger
potentials on the surface of the scalp that are easier
to control and in any case will have a greater
It might be easier to use these. e.g. muscle and
eye movement potentials are hundreds of times greater
than brain wave voltages.
There are claims to use brain waves for control
purposes, but I think it is these other electro-
physiological phenomena that are really being trained.
