CapTrak: Brain Products’ accurate, fast electrode localization tool designed for actiCAP active electrodes

Brain Products is excited to announce a groundbreaking development soon to be released: CapTrak, a light, handheld scanner equipped with two integrated cameras and an intuitive, easy-to-use software. CapTrak innovatively employs a triangulation method which allows to detect the positions of the actiCAP active electrodes within very short time. Determining 128 electrode positions in less than 5 minutes with unequaled accuracy and reproducibility is no longer a dream – it´s CapTrak!

Independent Component Analysis – demystified!

For most researchers, Independent Component Analysis (ICA) might be equivalent with a black box, magically cleaning your EEG data. In this article, we uncover the theoretical background and requirements of ICA and present its implementation in BrainVision Analyzer. We will provide core insights into the method, allowing you to confidently integrate ICA into your data processing pipelines.

Fostering the next generation of scientists

Brain Products offers workshops for various levels of neurophysiological researchers using electroencephalography (EEG). Since we take strong interest in fostering the next generation of scientists, Brain Products additionally organizes special events for young researchers being part of European training networks.

Comparison of sensor selection mechanisms

Currently there is a tendency to more and more use EEG not only for clinical analysis but also for Brain-Computer Interfaces (BCIs) for disabled people, for gaming, or for supervision, e.g, during driving. Here, it is important to know how many sensors are needed, and how they should be placed. This enables an easy setup of the electrode cap with reduced resources, while at the same time maintaining the system’s performance. The summarized article deals with this topic and introduces and compares several methods to choose relevant electrodes (sensors).
