Figure 2. An example of a head coil with a specific EEG cable tree routing option. The cable tree from the BrainCap MR runs in a straight line directly from the top of the volunteer’s head. In this case, the head coil is the Siemens Head/Neck 64 coil

Changes to the BrainCap MR

by Dr. Tracy Warbrick Application Specialist EEG-fMRI (Brain Products) The BrainCap MR has been the preferred choice for simultaneous EEG-fMRI research for more than a decade, but advances in fMRI technology mean that it needs an update. We have made some changes to the standard BrainCap MR cable lengths to improve the user experience and…
