In every single trail of the electro-encephalography there exists a certain potential called readiness potential or RP. Detection of this potential can help researchers to develop a suitable mechanism to detect the intention of movement. This helps research development in malfunctioning of brain and brain–computer interfacing. Here a Blind Source Separation algorithm is used based on second-order blind identification (SOBI).14-06-2017-918
