Keeping active electrodes fit and well: A guide for diagnosis and repair

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!

  • Inclusivity in EEG Research: Tips for Recording EEG from People with Thick Natural Hair

Inclusivity in EEG Research: Tips for Recording EEG from People with Thick Natural Hair

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.

  • Transcranial Evoked Potentials can be reliably recorded with active electrodes (Fig. 1)

Transcranial Evoked Potentials can be reliably recorded with active electrodes

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.

Brain Products featured on kid’s television show “Checker Tobi” about the brain

We were visited by the host of a famous German children’s television series to show them the basics of how EEG works and demonstrate a Brain Computer Interface (BCI). The final production is in German, but still provides an entertaining way of communicating advanced neuroscience concepts to a young audience.

  • The sound of silence: an EEG hyperscanning study

The sound of silence: an EEG study of how musicians time pauses in individual and joint music performance

We recently investigated how musical partners resolve unmeasured expressive silences in musical interaction. Partners resolved shorter silences more synchronously than longer silences; partners also displayed enhanced neural markers of motor preparation for shorter relative to longer silences. Thus, shorter silences in interaction may facilitate interpersonal coordination.

  • A “how-to” guide on combining Brain Products equipment for Sport Psychophysiology

A “how-to” guide on combining Brain Products equipment for Sport Psychophysiology

In this article, we provide you with an example on the “how-to” of acquiring and analysing sport psychophysiology data. Given the potential complexity of the topic, we decided to focus on the concrete example of golf putting. However, our hope is to provide you with a general idea that you can re-shape and adapt to other sport movements that are of interest to your research question.

  • Methodology for characterizing network activations with neuro-navigated TMS and EEG

Methodology for characterizing network activations with neuro-navigated TMS and EEG

This aEEG-TMSrticle walks you through the collection of neuro-navigated simultaneously obtained Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) evoked EEG (TMS-EEG) data to investigate network-specific TMS-induced EEG activations, as in Ozdemir et al, 2020 (PNAS), focusing specifically on the methods of TMS-EEG data collection and analysis.
