Abstract: Brain Computer Interface is a paralyzed system. This system is used for direct communication between brain nerves and computer devices. BCI is an imagery movement of the patients who are all unable to communicate with the people. In EEG signals feature extraction plays an important role. Statistical based features are essential feature being used in machine learning applications. Researchers mainly focus on the filters and feature extraction techniques. In this paper data are collected from the BCI Competition III dataset 1a. Statistical features like minimum, maximum, standard deviation, variance, skewnesss, kurtosis, root mean square, average, energy, contrast, correlation and Homogeneity are extracted. Classification is done using machine learning techniques such as Support Vector Machine, Artificial Neural Network and K-Nearest Neighbor. In the proposed system 90.6% accuracy is achieved.
