This year marks the 25th anniversary of Brain Products. Since 1997, we have been committed to providing solutions for neurophysiological research. Here is a short look back at the story of Brain Products so far and a brief look at our pledge for the future.
The best possible data quality is achieved by using a battery to power your EEG amplifier. However, there are many cases where a mains power supply is needed to ensure uptime of the system in your lab. With Mains Power Supply for BrainAmp we reintroduce a solution that allows you to power BrainAmp amplifiers from the mains.
Until recently, there has been little information about EEG data quality and safety when used with newer multi-band (MB) fMRI sequences. Here, we measure the relative heating of a MB protocol compared with a standard single-band (SB) protocol considered to be safe. We also evaluated EEG quality recorded concurrently with the MB protocol on humans.
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.
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.
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!
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.
We are very pleased to be organising exciting Brain Products Academy events throughout 2022. We started the year with our Foundations of EEG – Theory, Hardware, and Application Principles online workshop aimed at newcomers to the EEG field. We are delighted that this online event was such a great success.
Brain Products will be attending or hosting the following events from April to August 2022. Please stop by or sign up, say hello and take the opportunity to meet our team, learn more about our application solutions or discuss your research and neuroscience requirements.
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 member to you.
