Recently, several studies investigated the ongoing brain oscillations preceding the presentation of a
stimulus in perception as well as motor and cognitive paradigms. In particular, the amplitude in the
alpha frequency band is often correlated with performance. On the other hand, Dickhaus et al 
developed an SMR-predictor, which shows a positive correlation of the sensorimotor rhythm (SMR)
amplitude in a rest condition with BCI feedback performance. Here, we study the influence of prestimulus
SMR on timing and strength of motor imagery induced SMR modulations with the aim to
develop an SMR-state-dependent BCI.
