Final Year Personal Project – Cortical Steganography: A Novel Approach To Multifactor Authentication Through Sensorimotor Coupled Implicit Learning (Silvanto Lab, Faculty of Science & Technology)

As the study was designed purely by myself, various technical skills and soft skills was developed and refined during the course of the project. These include: Programming, laboratory experience, problem solving, experimental design, literature search and review, counterbalancing, participant recruitment, data collection, analysis, and statistical adjustments.

Areas of development: Include pattern classification methods for a specific biomarker in ERP data (as new biometric model for authentication). Increase participant numbers, study on one cluster type.

Discoveries and research:  Target sequence performance advantage was also found to increase from session 1 to session 2 by 52.3% in the trained group. While in the untrained group, Target sequence performance advantage decreased across sessions by 27.8%.
