The Photo Sensor measures the screen brightness and, when combined with StimTrak, generates a trigger at the exact stimulus onset. It is a valuable tool to check the performance of a monitor or any experiment control software. This becomes essential if visual stimuli are planned to be presented on a tablet or cell phone display.
We integrated concurrent real-time fMRI (rtfMRI) and electroencephalography (EEG) data on commercial MRI and EEG equipment. We also report a proof-of-concept experiment using simultaneous multimodal rtfMRI and EEG neurofeedback (rtfMRI-EEG-nf). With this approach participants receive information about their electrophysiological (EEG) and hemodynamic (BOLD fMRI) activity in real-time, and volitionally regulate their own brain activity.
Imaging the human brain during active behavior is essential to understand how the brain supports natural cognitive processes that are based on and make use of our physical structure. A new imaging modality, mobile brain/body imaging (MoBI), uses electroencephalography (EEG) synchronized to motion capture and other data streams to investigate brain activity while participants actively move in and interact with their environment.
This article reviews research at the University of Houston on the design of non-invasive and reliable brain-machine interface (BMI) systems for the control of powered exoskeletons for restoration and rehabilitation of gait in persons with paraplegia and other forms of paralysis.
The Centre of Neurosciences of Cuba recently inaugurated its new facilities, being this the culmination of 45 years of research which led to the creation of CNEURO 25 years ago. One of the keynote lectures was given by Prof. Louis Lemieux (sponsored by Brain Products) on the role of EEG in fMRI studies.
The 12th Biannual Conference of the German Cognitive Science Society took place in Tuebingen (Germany), attracting approximately 300 scientists. Brain Products sponsored awards for the best papers. Here are the winners.
The 6th Int. BCI Conference took place from September 16 – 19, 2014 (Graz University of Technology, Austria). This year’s conference theme was “The Future of Brain-Computer Interaction: Basics, Shortcomings, Users”. About 200 researchers from 35 nations participated; Brain Products sponsored Best Talk and Best Poster Awards.
The Marie Curie Initial Training Networks (ITN) represent a European initiative to improve the career prospects for young scientists through transnational networking mechanisms. Brain Products is involved in such a project named ACT – Action Research: Improving understanding and methodologies in early development.
