We are introducing two new versions of our LiveAmp mobile amplifier to enable EEG research that works with a low number of electrodes. The LiveAmp 8 and 16 enable high-quality wireless recording of 8 and 16 channels, respectively.
LiveAmp joins the Brain Products family of amplifiers (BrainAmp, actiCHamp and V-Amp) that can be used by the open-source community. This article shows how to use LiveAmp in OpenViBE, BCI2000 and LSL open-source frameworks.
The “Brain Products Young Scientist Award” 2017 was handed to Dr. Monika Schönauer for her outstanding publication, titled “Decoding material-specific memory reprocessing during sleep in humans”, published in Nature Communications 8, Article number: 15404.
The last years have seen an overwhelming amount of research aiming to disentangle the neural mechanisms underlying goal-directed behavior and cognitive control processes. In that regard, the basal ganglia have attracted much interest. It is known that the striatum is a very complex neuroanatomical structure and can be subdivided into the ‘matrix’ and the ‘striosomes’. Yet, it has been unclear whether this striatal microstructure is important to consider for cognitive functions, as well.
New R&D project: AMoRSA – Adaptive and highly motivating platform for the rehabilitation of patients with arm palsy following a stroke
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: AMoRSA.
Thanks to your unwavering trust in us, Brain Products is continually growing. To keep offering you unrivaled services and customer support, we’re constantly looking for dedicated, highly skilled professionals to join our team. On that note, we’re excited to introduce our newest team members to you.
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!
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
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.
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.
