Press Release 04/2014 – Overview

  • Product Launch: Photo Sensor
    Photo Sensor: Neuroscience 2014
    The Photo Sensor measures the screen brightness and, when combined with StimTrak, generates a trigger at the exact stimulus onset. It is a valuable tool to check the performance of a monitor or any experiment control software. This becomes essential if visual stimuli are planned to be presented on a tablet or cell phone display.  → continue reading
  • User Research: Integration of concurrent real-time fMRI and EEG data – Self-regulation of human brain activity using simultaneous real-time fMRI and EEG neurofeedback
    We integrated concurrent real-time fMRI (rtfMRI) and electroencephalography (EEG) data on commercial MRI and EEG equipment. We also report a proof-of-concept experiment using simultaneous multimodal rtfMRI and EEG neurofeedback (rtfMRI-EEG-nf). With this approach participants receive information about their electrophysiological (EEG) and hemodynamic (BOLD fMRI) activity in real-time, and volitionally regulate their own brain activity.  → continue reading

    In this support tip we are presenting 10 simple, but valuable tricks and tips that will make your work with BrainVision Analyzer even easier and more efficient.  → continue reading
  • BeMoBIL LogoAn introduction to mobile brain/body imaging (MoBI)
    Imaging the human brain during active behavior is essential to understand how the brain supports natural cognitive processes that are based on and make use of our physical structure. A new imaging modality, mobile brain/body imaging (MoBI), uses electroencephalography (EEG) synchronized to motion capture and other data streams to investigate brain activity while participants actively move in and interact with their environment.   → continue reading
