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 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.
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.
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.
Curious about combining EEG and fNIRS for your stationary, lab-based research? If the answer is yes, then check out our step-by-step guide on stationary EEG-fNIRS setup with actiCHamp Plus, actiCAP slim/snap, and NIRScout.
This study investigates whether 4-month-old infants build causal action-effect models, a prerequisite for a sense of agency. Using behavioral and neural measures of violation of expectation, we found evidence for causal models only in a subset of infants. Thus, the sense of agency is beginning to emerge at this age.
Given the huge variety of EEG Recording Caps that are available on the market choosing the right one is sometimes not an easy task. In this article Falk Minow (General Manager of Easycap GmbH), gives a comprehensive overview of different cap solutions offered by Easycap and Brain Products.
Curious about combining EEG and fNIRS for your mobile research? If the answer is yes, then check out our step-by-step guide on mobile EEG-fNIRS setup with LiveAmp, actiCAP slim/snap, and NIRSport 2.
Brain Products and EasyCap strive to present options so that you have the freedom of choice when combining our equipment with that of another manufacturer. Here we present adaptors for connecting Brain Products and EGI systems.
Brain Products was proud to sponsor the Mirage91 team at the CYBATHLON BCI Series on September 17th in Graz. Equipped with a LiveAmp and actiCAP slim system, Mirage91 with pilot Pascal Prietl won second place overall! We look forward to sponsoring them and the SEC FHT team at the global CYBATHLON competition in May 2020.
