Both magnetoencephalography and electrocorticography recordings have been used to decode which of two competing sources a listener is attending. However, it is not clear whether these techniques might work with Electroencephalography (EEG), particularly in a real-time system. We therefore set out to decode a listener’s attentional focus from EEG signals in real time, knowledge that could be incorporated into next-generation assistive listening devices.
