Abstract: Steady-state visual evoked potential (SSVEP) is one of the most effective modalities for brain-computer interaction. However, its flickering visual stimuli may cause discomfort, even induce migraine and seizure attacks among its viewers. This paper presents a novel approach to induce SSVEP with high signal-to-noise ratios (SNRs) using composite color lights flickering near or above its critical flicker fusion (CFF) thresholds. Different combinations of frequencies, relative phases and pulse widths of the stimuli waveforms were tested for their effectiveness to produce high SNR values among their SSVEP responses. Results of our experiments were analyzed and studied. The rationale behind the special design of high-frequency polychromatic stimuli and the implications towards the development of an effective brain-display interaction (BDI) system were also discussed.
