How to decide which EEG electrode technology best fits your research

You would like to start with EEG research, but you are unsure what type of electrode technology works best for you? Given the range of possibilities, it can be hard to choose the best EEG system for your research. If you could use some guidance, this article is a good start for you!

  • EEG amplifier signal pipeline, and why you (mostly) do not need to worry about aliasing

EEG amplifier signal pipeline, and why you (mostly) do not need to worry about aliasing

An EEG signal goes through various transformations on both the hardware- and software-level before being saved on the hard disk or being displayed on the screen. This article explains the pipeline principles and highlights the difference between user-configurable filters vs. automatic filters that prevent aliasing artifacts by design.

Hyperscanning series part 5: How to analyze a hyperscanning dataset with BrainVision Analyzer 2

In this article we will dip into common analysis goals for hyperscanning and why they are relevant for research fields such as social neuroscience. We will focus on dealing with multi-participant datasets and inter-brain connectivity in BrainVision Analyzer 2 helping you to complete your hyperscanning analysis.

A guide to peripheral physiology measurements using the BrainAmp ExG MR – Part 2: Let’s focus on ECG

In this part of our peripheral physiology series we introduce ECG measurement using BrainAmp ExG MR in the MR environment. The safety issues associated with ECG in the MR environment are highlighted. We explain the mechanisms which may limit the signal quality and introduce a methodology to obtain precise heart rate information.

Hyperscanning series part 4: How to do hyperscanning with trigger forwarding

In this hyperscanning series, we first introduced our gold standard solution based on BrainAmps, then a wireless solution using CGX Quick headsets and the StimTrigger, as well as the extremely flexible LSL solution. In this fourth part, we demonstrate another hardware-based option: using the trigger mirror mode which can be used with actiCHamp Plus and LiveAmp together with the Sensor & Trigger Extension.

Keeping active electrodes fit and well: A guide for diagnosis and repair

Are you a user of the Brain Products active electrodes? Do you struggle to check whether your active electrodes are still fit for recording? Was it already suggested to perform a “saline test” but you are not sure on how to interpret the outcome of your test? This article might be ideal for you!

  • Inclusivity in EEG Research: Tips for Recording EEG from People with Thick Natural Hair

Inclusivity in EEG Research: Tips for Recording EEG from People with Thick Natural Hair

To record a high-quality EEG signal, either the electrode or a conductive solution must make good contact with the scalp. This can be difficult to achieve in participants with certain hair types and styles, such as Black participants with thick Natural hair leading to their disproportionate exclusion from studies. We offer tips to address these challenges and achieve more inclusive data collection pools.
