Setting up an actiCAP slim/snap system in a nice and neat way has several benefits, including reducing preparation times as well as the risks of unintentional damages. With high density caps though, this process can appear challenging. In this article we provide our guidelines and tips on how to nicely prepare a 128-channel actiCAP snap cap with actiCAP slim electrodes that can be applied in any laboratory and setup.
…and now it is! With our latest product improvement, you can identify electrode positions in your layout more easily and help beginners learn the 10-10 system intuitively while preparing caps in the lab. In this article we are pleased to introduce the new actiCAP with electrode labels printed on the fabric.
Translating visual perception from the lab to the real world using mobile EEG and mixed reality displays
This research combines mobile EEG and augmented reality (AR) to study cognition. Participants completed three face inversion tasks: (1) computer-based, (2) mobile EEG with photographs, (3) mobile EEG with AR. We find face inversion effects in all tasks, concluding that mobile EEG and AR is a promising approach for research.
Investigating mental workload-induced changes in cortical oxygenation and frontal theta activity during simulated flights: an interview with author, Anneke Hamann
In a recent publication, Anneke Hamann and Nils Carstengerde (German Aerospace Center, Institute of Flight Guidance) investigated pilots’ cognitive states using EEG & fNIRS and analyzed the effects of stepwise increased mental workload while controlling for fatigue. Here is an interview with the authors about their paper and their fascinating 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!
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.
In this article, based on our current work, we compared transcranial evoked potentials recorded with active and passive electrodes. Signals obtained with the two methods did not statistically differ in amplitude and topography, and showed a high degree of similarity across the scalp. We conclude that active electrodes are a viable solution for studies combining transcranial magnetic stimulation and electroencephalography.
Are you fascinated by mobile EEG and would like to explore real-world scenarios, but are unsure of how to prepare your setup and overcome its technical challenges? Read on to learn about how we combined EEG with wearable eye tracking from our partner Tobii Pro. We’ll show you how to optimize your setup and provide some inspiration for your next investigations!
