A non-negligible portion subjects has been shown to be unable to learn how to control a motor imagery (MI) based brain-computer interface (BCI), within a limited duration of training. There is a need for alternative imagery strategies for such users. In this study, imagery of self-induced emotion states were explored as an alternative to MI, using a standard motor imagery BCI paradigm and setup. Electroencephalogram (EEG) correlates of self-induced emotions have been previously used to recognize emotions, as in [1], and here, we hypothesize that emotion imagery (EI) can be used to modulate brain activity and used as a BCI control strategy. Preliminary results comparing the performance of three subjects (N=3, age range = 27-35) performing MI and EI are presented.
