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.
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.
As a company providing neurophysiological solutions to researchers, Brain Products must always remain on the cutting edge of science and innovation. In the past, Brain Products has been successful in obtaining funding from federal agencies for various R&D projects. A new pilot action under the EU Research and Innovation Framework Programme “Horizon 2020” supports European small-to-medium enterprises (SMEs) to recruit post-doctoral research associates from other countries to explore an innovative business idea. Under this action, Brain Products was granted funding and support for the “MoBI” project.
We are pleased to announce the winners of the second MoBI Award! The aim of the MoBI Award is to recognize excellence in the field of Mobile Brain/Body Imaging research. Given that this is such a rapidly growing field, Brain Products wants to encourage scientists who take their research out of the lab and into the real world. During the 3rd International Mobile Brain/Body Imaging Conference in Berlin, Brain Products awarded the first, second and third place winners with LiveAmp 32, LiveAmp 16 and LiveAmp 8 packages (incl. amplifier, electrode cap and recording software), respectively.
The “Brain Products Young Scientist Award” 2018 was handed to Matthias Sperl, M.Sc. for his outstanding publication, titled “Fear extinction recall modulates human frontomedial theta and amygdala activity”, published in Cerebral Cortex; doi: 10.1093/cercor/bhx353.
On May 3, 2018 Dr. Thomas Blacker received the “UCL-CNT Early Career Investigator Award in Neuroimaging Techniques 2017” at University College London (UK). Endowed with prize money of £1000, this award has been presented annually to students and early postdocs at UCL since 2007 and since then has been proudly sponsored by Brain Products.
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 members to you.
