Abstract: Brain signals are complex and nonstationary, each signal represents an intendent behavior of a user. Brain Computer Interfaces (BCIs) are used to extract and translate these signals. Electroencephalography (EEG) is the common method used for this purpose. Identifying which signal represents which action is important. In this paper, we extracted spatial and spectral patterns for right and left hands imagined movements from EEG signals. We considered only C3 and C4 bipolar channels and band frequency (8-30 Hz) for both alpha and beta. The relevant features classified using Support Vector Machine (SVM) and 9 other common classifiers to compare and contrast classification performances. To ensure classification performance we calculated confusion matrix classes for all 9 subjects from II b dataset. Classification accuracy observed and recorded from all classifiers and 9 subjects. The highest classification accuracy scores for 3 subjects S4, S8 and S9 are (100 %, 89 %, and 71 %) and misclassification scores are (0 %, 11% and 29 %) respectively.
