In this study, a novel method called DIVCSP is proposed that can be a good alternative to the spatial filtering methods which are used to have a good discrimination between different classes in motor imagery based brain computer interfaces. With DIVCSP method spatial filters that increase between classes scattering while decreasing in-class scattering can be obtained thus, the classification accuracy can be increased. The classification results obtained with DIVCSP show that, proposed method is a good alternative to CSP method which is widely popular.
