News in brief

Miscellaneous News New Isotonic Electrolyte Gel for GSR/EDA Since Summer 2021 the well-known special electrolyte for galvanic skin response (GSR) or electrodermal activity (EDA) recordings, TD-246, is no longer available, leaving a severe gap as no other commercial isotonic electrolyte seems to be available. Easycap GmbH therefore put its effort into developing and evaluating an…

Recording the same example sine wave with different sampling rates (= time resolution) and amplitude resolution. The necessary amount of accuracy depends on the Amplitude, signal-to-noise ratio and frequency of the signal of interest. Please note that the differences depicted here are exaggerated and will be much less noticeable with real data recorded from BrainAmp, actiCHamp, or LiveAmp.

Multicenter studies with different hardware – what to look out for

by Dr. David Schubring Scientific Consultant (Brain Products) Joining different labs to run the same study protocol has many advantages, e.g., including more participants from more diverse demographic and geographic backgrounds, comparing results between labs, benefiting from networking and knowledge transfer between colleagues, and ultimately a better generalizability of the results. On the other hand,…
