In this paper, we show how such enhancement of Farwell-Donchin BCI enables a fresh, inexperienced user to achieve quickly an accurate BCI control with a high information transfer rate. This paper presents the results of a BCI experiment where the participant, who had no previous BCI experience, obtained, in about 20 min, a highly reliable and fast control over the BCI spelling device based on the Farwell-Donchin paradigm. Offline analysis showed that the high performance of the BCI was, to a high extent, due to the use of the ERP component N1, in addition to component P300, which has been considered the only ERP component important for the prediction of user`s choice in the Farwell-Donchin paradigm in many publications.
