  • Alcohol Hangover Impacts Learning and Reward Processing Within the Medial-Frontal Cortex

Alcohol Hangover Impacts Learning and Reward Processing Within the Medial-Frontal Cortex

Alcohol intoxication impairs motor coordination, judgement, and decision-making. Interestingly, research suggests that the impact of alcohol consumption continues beyond the point of intoxication and into a period of alcohol hangover. Here, we examined differences in the amplitude of reward positivity – an event-related brain potential component associated with learning and how the amplitude of this component was impacted by alcohol hangover

Wireless Trigger – a fully mobile solution for recording event markers in EEG data

The new Wireless Trigger set consists of a transmitter, connected to a trigger source, and a receiver, connected to an amplifier. This solution allows you to replace a trigger cable in your experimental setup making it completely wireless and opens new exciting ways to approach your mobile EEG research.

  • CapTrak

Tips for a better CapTrak experience

Accurate source localization needs accurate electrode positions. With the CapTrak, users can accurately and quickly acquire positions of all Brain Products active electrodes. However, a few things should be considered to ensure a quick and successful electrode localization. In this Support Tip, we provide you with some practical suggestions to help you improve the digitization of your active electrode set when using the CapTrak.

  • FI MoBI Award

Brain Products successfully finishes EU funded project and strengthens its position in the MoBI market

Last year we won a pilot grant from the EU: the H2020 SME Innovation Associate. With this grant we were able to employ Dr. Christina Lavallée, a highly-skilled researcher from Canada. Christina helped us explore the growing and promising market of mobile wearable EEG devices – the MoBI market.

From Canada to “Wieder Da” [“back again”]

Many of you may remember me, Lydia Timm, either from my 4 years at Brain Products in the Support, and later Marketing department or from my time at Brain Products‘ daughter company, Brain Vision Solutions (Canada). I am now back in Germany and excited to announce that I have recently joined MES Forschungssysteme.

  • actiCAP slim active Electrodes Walkthrough

actiCAP slim active Electrodes Walkthrough

In issue 01/2017 we published an “actiCAP active Electrodes Walkthrough” guide to the practical use of actiCAP electrodes. Given the release of our new actiCAP slim electrodes, here is a detailed walkthrough showing you how to use actiCAP slim electrodes. Again, we added tricks and tips that help to make your recording sessions as smooth as possible.

  • Using mobile EEG to assess the Bereitschaftspotential before 192-meter extreme bungee jumping

Using mobile EEG to assess the Bereitschaftspotential before 192-meter extreme bungee jumping

Self-initiated voluntary acts are preceded by a negative electrical brain potential, the Bereitschaftspotential (BP), occurring up to two seconds before the actual movement. Up to now, the BP has only been recorded under laboratory conditions. Here recording of the BP before self-initiated 192-meter extreme bungee jumping is reported for the first time. Our results pave the way to further investigate the neural substrates and mechanisms underlying real-world decision making and behaviour.
