Maximizing the potential of sensorimotor alpha modulation as a control signal for BCI using offline attentional training

In this study the fields of BCI (brain-computer Interface) and cognitive neuroscience come together, using the attentional modulation of somatosensory alpha. The sensory attention task, instead of the commonly used motor imagery paradigm, allows specific offline sensory attention training (body-scan) that is expected to increase BCI performance. 
The project will profit from two related, but independent analysis: 
 - From BCI point of view the aim is to investigate whether somatosensory attention can be used for BCI and test whether the user performance can be improved by short-term attention training. 
- From the neuroscientific point of view (where the main focus of my attention will be) we will 
    1) show how somatosensory attention modulates somatosensory alpha oscillations, 
    2) investigate the correlation of the above with behavioural measures of attention 
    3) the effects of (immediate / long-term) attention training on alpha modulation
