TurboLink – new solution enabling ultra-fast brain state-dependent research

by Dr. Michael Schubert Product Manager (Brain Products) An increasing number of research applications require online access to EEG data streams. For example, when signal features of the EEG are used to trigger TMS (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation) pulses, or where algorithms in BCI (Brain Computer Interface) applications are used to provide immediate response. For these…

Recording the same example sine wave with different sampling rates (= time resolution) and amplitude resolution. The necessary amount of accuracy depends on the Amplitude, signal-to-noise ratio and frequency of the signal of interest. Please note that the differences depicted here are exaggerated and will be much less noticeable with real data recorded from BrainAmp, actiCHamp, or LiveAmp.

Multicenter studies with different hardware – what to look out for

by Dr. David Schubring Scientific Consultant (Brain Products) Joining different labs to run the same study protocol has many advantages, e.g., including more participants from more diverse demographic and geographic backgrounds, comparing results between labs, benefiting from networking and knowledge transfer between colleagues, and ultimately a better generalizability of the results. On the other hand,…

News in brief

Miscellaneous News Now available: Latest Release of BrainVision Recorder With the latest release of BrainVision Recorder (version 1.24.0001) in June, 2021, it is now possible to collect data from actiCHamp (Plus) auxiliary channels only – without an EEG channel module inserted into the actiCHamp (Plus) amplifier. This makes sure you are also all set for…

Introducing Tobii hardware and software: the perfect complement to your EEG and eye tracking research

by Dr. Christina Florence Lavallée Strategic Product Manager (Brain Products) To provide solutions for neurophysiological researchers, we are always staying current and up to date on integrating EEG with complementary methods to equip scientists with the most comprehensive solution for understanding the relationship between brain and behaviour. These combined methods have been a focus for…

News in brief

Miscellaneous News CapTrak has been updated with USB 3.0 cameras CapTrak, our handheld electrode localization tool for actiCAP active electrodes, has been updated. This device works to detect the position of actiCAP electrodes via triangulation with two integrated cameras to give you fast, accurate and reliable localization of your actiCAP electrodes. We have recently replaced…
