BCI (brain computer interface) is particularly important for HCI. Some of recent results concerning BCI made a great contribution to the development of the HCI research area. In this paper we define “good-trained brain states”, and then propose a method for discriminating good-trained brain states from other states. We believe that repetitious training might be effective to human brains. Human brain reactions can be quantified by ERPs (event related potentials). We analyze the data of ERPs reflecting the brain reactions, and then discuss the effect of repetitious training to the brain states.
