Abstract

Steady-state visually evoked potentials (SSVEP) can be elicited by a large variety of stimuli. To the best of our knowledge, the size and shape effect of stimuli has never been investigated in the literature. We study the relationship between the visual parameters (size and shape) of the stimulation and the resulting brain response. A tentative physiological interpretation is proposed and the potential of the effect in a Brain-Computer Interface is outlined.
