Evaluation and testing of Brain-Computer Interface applications using an electroencephalogram is time-consuming and tiring for end users. This paper describes the process of developing a simulator for a paradigm based on visual event related potentials. Used as input into a real BCI application, we demonstrate that simulation at this level is useful for debugging applications and obtaining feedback from end users quickly. The simulator itself also fulfills a user requirement as it can be used to ‘handicap’ a healthy person, creating a level playing field in a game between both healthy and disabled users.
