The paper presents a comprehensive survey on International system for EEG (Electroencephalography) signal acquisition. The paper also explored various neuro-imaging techniques and EEG based neurological phenomenon applied for the development of BCI systems extremely useful for able bodied and disabled people. From the survey it is concluded that P300 signal are the most appropriate signal for classifying brain activity using EEG imaging technique.
