User Research Hyperscanning: Figure 2. A: Topographies displaying mean ERD% across pause deciles for Solo (top) and Duet (bottom). Outliers were not removed for this visualization (but were for data submitted to analyses, see 3b-c). B: ERD% data for Observed (dashed) and Predicted (solid) Solo performance results. C: ERD% data for Observed (dashed) and Predicted Duet performance results. D: Relationship predicted from Linear Mixed Model between standardized pause duration and beta ERD%. All predicted data displayed are computed from the full Linear Mixed Effects Model (see Results).

Easycap EEG recording caps: An overview

by Falk Minow General Manager (Easycap GmbH)     Despite some interesting new developments in the area of EEG Recording Caps like sponge-and-saltwater-nets or dry-electrode-headsets, the majority of EEG research is still done with electrolyte-gel-filled-electrode-caps. Easycap manufactures caps with any channel number, any layout and for connection to any amplifier. This is not only for…

Tips for a better CapTrak experience

by Dr. Pedro M. R. Reis Scientific Consultant (Brain Products) Abstract Accurate source localization needs accurate electrode positions. With the CapTrak users can accurately and quickly acquire positions of all Brain Products active electrodes. However, a few things should be considered to ensure a quick and successful electrode localization. By understanding the basic concepts behind the…

Product Launch: actiCAP slim and actiCAP snap – The next generation active electrode system

by Dr. Thomas Emmerling Scientific Consultant (Brain Products) Since the release in 2005, the actiCAP has been widely adopted. Active electrodes have become the gold standard in research EEG – at least for applications where data quality is critical. The possibility to perform recordings at higher impedances using the active circuitry and the LED impedance…
