Neuro-degenerative diseases can break brain's common output pathways of peripheral nerves and muscles in an individual, inhibiting his ability to perform daily tasks. Brain Computer Interfaces BCI make decoding-encoding of brain signals into control instructions for external devices. This work proposes the use of stacked autoencoders and a softmax layer for classification of visual stimuli from Electrocorticographic (ECoG) signals as an input to the BCI control system. Experimental results show that the proposed method has a good classification performance (average accuracy across subjects 0.95 +/- 0.05), compared to state-of-the-art approaches as Support Vector Machines SVM. Furthermore, the proposed network architecture allows analysis of the weights learned by the classifier making it possible to obtain insights of what signal features the classifier uses to discriminate the visual stimulus.
