Initially ERP presence was examined in different brain areas. To accomplish that 20 EEG channels were used positioned according to the 10-20 international system. The grand average resulting from 10 normal subjects showed as expected responses at frontal central and parietal areas particularly evident at the central area C3 C4 Cz . The MSC applied to movement imagination related EEG signals detected a consistent response in frequencies around Hz delta band mainly at central area C3 Cz and C4 . Ability differences in control imagination among subjects produced different detection performance. Some subjects needed up to 45 events for a detectable response while for some others only 10 events proved sufficient. Some subjects also required two or three experimental sessions in order to achieve detectable responses. .
