Since the very beginning, all Brain Products EEG systems were designed for co-registration of peripheral physiological signals.
Over the years, our Technical Support Team identified the most frequent questions and our team member Dr. Stefania Geraci started to compile a tutorial, in which many of these questions are addressed. We are now happy to release the online version of the Brain Products Sensor Tutorial.
Our Sensor Tutorial, which is available here, is currently restricted to laboratory and mobile applications; specific issues of the MR-environment are not covered in this release.
Each of the most frequently used sensors got an extra chapter:
- Galvanic Skin Response (GSR) sensor
for Electrodermal activity (EDA) – go to chapter
- Acceleration sensor (1D and 3D)
for movement detection – go to chapter
- Finger-photoplethysmogram sensor
for the pulse wave (PPG) – go to chapter
- Respiration sensor
for breath movements – go to chapter
- BIP2AUX sensor – go to chapter
All chapters are identically structured as follows:
1. Explanation of elementary physiological and measurement principles
2. Presentation of sample signals
3. Practical tips and tricks
4. Workspace parameters for different amplifiers, including;
a. Amplifier settings
b. Signal specific visualization
5. Technical specifications
6. Maintenance, cleaning and disinfection of the sensors
7. Further reading and important guidelines
Further to this, the Brain Products Scientific Support Team has provided an article on offline analysis of sensor data using BrainVision Analyzer 2 which is published in this issue of our Press Release as well.
If you need further help on sensor application or signal analysis, please feel free to contact either the Brain Products Technical (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Scientific Support Team (email@example.com). We are happy to provide you with more information and answer all remaining questions you may have.
