Synopsis

BCPy2000 takes the C++ out of BCI2000 programming. It is aimed at developers of new applications and new signal processing methods, providing a platform for rapid, flexible development of experimental Brain-Computer Interface systems in Python. It takes advantage of various high-level Python packages: VisionEgg[1] for stimulus presentation, NumPy[2] and SciPy[3] for signal processing and classification, and IPython[4] for interactive debugging.

You can program a python-based application module, signal processing module, or even a signal source module for generating custom test signals and playing back data files. You can slow the system right down or even step through packet-by-packet, while interactively debugging your python code with pdb.

BCPy2000 implements a lot of infrastructure that allows you to get an application module running quickly. It also contains a set of optional tools, which are still a work in progress, but which are rapidly turning into a kind of "standard library" of Pythonic signal-processing algorithms and stimulus widgets.

The source code is available under the terms of the GNU General Public License v3.
