The investigation of BCI (Brain Computer Interface) is particularly interesting for HCI research. Some of recent results concerning BCI have much contributed to the progress of HCI. In this paper we propose an effective ERP model that can reduce the difference among individuals in the process of repetitive tasks. Human brain reactions are quantified by ERPs (Event Related Potentials) that reflect the change of brain reactions through repetitive tasks. We discuss a method of how to even out the difference appeared in ERPs among individuals.
