Brain-Computer Interfaces (BCI), although very promising, suffer from a poor reliability [1]. Rather than improving brain signal processing alone, an interesting research direction is to guide users to learn BCI control mastery. Thus, we present here a set of motivational and cognitive factors which could influence the learning process, and which should be considered to improve the global performance of BCI users. We based our study on Keller’s integrative theory of motivation, volition, and performance, which combines motivational (affective) and cognitive factors, to explain what makes human users learn and perform efficiently, irrespectively of the task [2]. These factors can guide the creation of learning environments, such as BCI training protocols. According to the theory, the optimization of motivational factors - Attention (triggering a person’s curiosity), Relevance (the compliance with a person’s motives or values), Confidence (the expectancy for success), and Satisfaction (by intrinsic and extrinsic rewards) - leads to more user efforts and thereby a better performance. Additionally, considering the cognitive factors - the limited user working memory (requiring to minimize the amount of skill-unrelated information), the way information is actively processed by him/her (requiring to make relevant information salient) and the existing knowledge in his/her long-term memory (requiring to relate the to-be-learned skill to existing knowledge) - leads to a more efficient skill acquisition.
