HappyFeat—An interactive and efficient BCI framework for clinical applications


Brain–Computer Interface (BCI) systems allow to perform actions by translating brain activity into commands. Such systems require training a classification algorithm to discriminate between mental states, using specific features from the brain signals. This step is crucial and presents specific constraints in clinical contexts. HappyFeat is an open-source software making BCI experiments easier in such contexts: effortlessly extracting and selecting adequate features for training, in a single GUI. Novel features based on Functional Connectivity can be used, allowing graph-oriented approaches. We describe HappyFeat’s mechanisms, showing its performances in typical use cases, and showcasing how to compare different types of features.
