P300 dataset bi2015a from a “Brain Invaders” experiment

This dataset contains electroencephalographic (EEG) recordings of 43 subjects playing to a visual P300 Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) videogame named Brain Invaders. The interface uses the oddball paradigm on a grid of 36 symbols (1 Target, 35 Non-Target) that are flashed pseudo-randomly to elicit the P300 response. EEG data were recorded using 32 active wet electrodes with three conditions: flash duration 50ms, 80ms or 110ms. The experiment took place at GIPSA-lab, Grenoble, France, in 2015. A full description of the experiment is available at [1]. The ID of this dataset is bi2015a.

data_path(subject, path=None, force_update=False, update_path=None, verbose=None)[source]#

Get path to local copy of a subject data.

  • subject (int) – Number of subject to use

  • path (None | str) – Location of where to look for the data storing location. If None, the environment variable or config parameter MNE_DATASETS_(dataset)_PATH is used. If it doesn’t exist, the “~/mne_data” directory is used. If the dataset is not found under the given path, the data will be automatically downloaded to the specified folder.

  • force_update (bool) – Force update of the dataset even if a local copy exists.

  • update_path (bool | None Deprecated) – If True, set the MNE_DATASETS_(dataset)_PATH in mne-python config to the given path. If None, the user is prompted.

  • verbose (bool, str, int, or None) – If not None, override default verbose level (see mne.verbose()).


path – Local path to the given data file. This path is contained inside a list of length one, for compatibility.

Return type:

list of str
