• actiCAP slim and actiCAP snap – The next generation active electrode system

Meet our newest electrode: the actiCAP slim

Slimmer, lighter and even more sturdy. The actiCAP is the go-to solution for reliable and flexible high-quality EEG recording. We kept on improving the design of the actiCAP electrode and today we introduce the biggest step forward for the actiCAP product family: the actiCAP slim!

  • The sound of silence: an EEG hyperscanning study

Understanding how sleep affects the human thalamus with EEG-fMRI

We are able to show using EEG-fMRI that the functional connectivity of the thalamus is generally increased by sleep onset and depth, and that sleep has a differential effect on sub-divisions of the thalamus. EEG-fMRI is a vital tool to understand the impact of sleep on cortical and subcortical processing.

  • New views made easy – Visualizing ECoG grids & connectivity matrices via Analyzer 2’s MATLAB® transformation

New views made easy – Visualizing ECoG grids & connectivity matrices via Analyzer 2’s MATLAB® transformation

BrainVision Analyzer 2 is easy to use and offers a variety of views to display your data with a single mouse click. However, science develops and new analysis methods entail the need for new data visualizations that Analyzer 2 does not yet support. This article briefly discusses how to expand the view capabilities of Analyzer 2 using the MATLAB® transformation. Two examples will illustrate this feature, where ECoG grid data and EEG connectivity matrices are visualized using simple MATLAB® functions.

  • Ultra fast closed loop applications combining our actiCHamp amplifier with Lab Streaming Layer (LSL)

Ultra fast closed loop applications combining our actiCHamp amplifier with LabStreamingLayer (LSL)

In the world of EEG, a closed loop application is typically interpreting/analyzing incoming EEG data and as a consequence of the analysis controls either Software or Hardware. A current hot topic in the neurophysiological research community are closed loop applications for brainstate dependent stimulation. Here obviously fast access or “real time access” to EEG data is the desire to precisely place the stimulation at the desired brainstate.

Annapurna Base Camp: Studying the Brain at High Altitude

Human achievement at high altitude requires the performance of skilled behaviors with cognitive clarity. To better understand how the brain changes at high altitude during a motor task we used the actiCAP Xpress Bundle to characterize motor circuit changes up to 4,130 meters in the Himalayan mountains of Nepal.

New R&D project: CoMiCon – BCI for patients in minimal conscious state

Following various innovative projects funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) and the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) in previous years, together with leading researchers Brain Products was successful in gaining funding for a couple of more projects. Here, we proudly introduce one of them in more detail: CoMiCon.
