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,…

actiCAP slim for EEG-TMS

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

by Recep Ozdemir, Emiliano Santarnecchi and Mouhsin M. Shafi Berenson-Allen Center for Noninvasive Brain Stimulation Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center Boston, MA (USA) This article walks users 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, focusing…

Brain Products provides a new SDK for actiCHamp/actiCHamp Plus and LiveAmp

by Dr. David Medine Product Manager BCI (Brain Products) For many years, Brain Products has provided a number of opensource solutions for data access: PyCorder, SDKs for BrainAmp and V-Amp, and the RemoteControlClient.
