In this study, we have carried out a brain-computer interface study that uses time delays between electrodes. As features, we have calculated the time delays that maximizes the absolute value of the cross-covariance between the chosen reference channel and the remaining channels. Performance results of 3 out of 5 participants that were nearly at a %100 accuracy level along with a relatively smaller number of training data, and a lack of similar studies indicate that the proposed approach is open to the further improvements.
