Dear Patrick,

I have never experimented myself with estimating engagement in EEG signals, but you could probably look at the following paper to try to reproduce what they did for instance:

Berka, C., Levendowski, D. J., Lumicao, M. N., Yau, A., Davis, G., Zivkovic, V. T., ... & Craven, P. L. (2007).
EEG correlates of task engagement and mental workload in vigilance, learning, and memory tasks.
Aviation, space, and environmental medicine, 78(Supplement 1), B231-B244.

I think you could probably do that with the boxes already available in openvibe, and indeed use the openvibe classifiers to try to estimate engagement. I hope this helps.

Best regards,
Fabien
