Timing Verification - Fig. 1

How to verify timing in your EEG setup

by Dr. Alex Kreilinger Strategic Product Manager (Brain Products) Before starting a study that involves EEG recording, it is always a good idea to make sure the setup, including software and hardware, works as planned to avoid any unwanted surprises once it’s time to analyze the recorded data. Unfortunately, it is not always obvious if…

TurboLink – new solution enabling ultra-fast brain state-dependent research

by Dr. Michael Schubert Product Manager (Brain Products) An increasing number of research applications require online access to EEG data streams. For example, when signal features of the EEG are used to trigger TMS (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation) pulses, or where algorithms in BCI (Brain Computer Interface) applications are used to provide immediate response. For these…

Hyperscanning series part 3: How to do hyperscanning with LabStreamingLayer (LSL)

by Dr. Alex Kreilinger Strategic Product Manager (Brain Products) In the previous articles of our hyperscanning series, we outlined our gold standard recommendation for hyperscanning with BrainAmps, as well as showed you how to perform hyperscanning wirelessly with CGX Quick headsets and StimTrigger. Part 3 introduces a more general approach, which is based on LabStreamingLayer…

Figure 2. How to position the BrainAmp MR (plus) system inside the scanner bore. Part A shows a BrainCap MR with CWLs inside a head coil, the top part of the head coil is removed to show the dedicated space for the EEG cable tree. 10 cm bundled cables are used to connect the EEG cap and CWLs to the amplifiers. Part B shows the full head coil and the BrainAmp MR plus and PowerPack positioned behind the head coil on a platform inside the scanner bore. A 30 cm ribbon cable is used to connect the EEG cap to the amplifier.

Safety tips for our new EEG-fMRI solutions

by Dr. Tracy Warbrick Application Specialist EEG-fMRI (Brain Products) In this article we provide an overview of our EEG-fMRI safety recommendations especially with respect to our recent developments. We will consider our sequence guidelines and what limits apply to our various caps. We will also provide an overview of recommendations for setting up the system…

Figure 1: With CWL Regression you can easily attenuate the artifacts related to head motion in EEG-fMRI datasets. The example displays the same portion of data twice, uncorrected with motion artifacts on the left side, and corrected with CWL Regression on the right side.
