Basal ganglia microstructure and EEG – a research expedition to the Philippines

The last years have seen an overwhelming amount of research aiming to disentangle the neural mechanisms underlying goal-directed behavior and cognitive control processes. In that regard, the basal ganglia have attracted much interest. It is known that the striatum is a very complex neuroanatomical structure and can be subdivided into the ‘matrix’ and the ‘striosomes’. Yet, it has been unclear whether this striatal microstructure is important to consider for cognitive functions, as well.

  • The sound of silence: an EEG hyperscanning study

Men at work: Mobile EEG as a new tool for neuroergonomics

Our recent study “Age-sensitive effects of enduring work with alternating cognitive and physical load. A study applying mobile EEG in a real life working scenario” demonstrates how mobile EEG can be utilized not only for user state examination but also for the evaluation of cognitive processing in real life working situations. Here is a summary of our publication.

  • Using resting state EEG to investigate long-term stability in children’s frontal EEG alpha asymmetry

Using resting state EEG to investigate long-term stability in children’s frontal EEG alpha asymmetry

In a recent study (Müller, B. C. N., Kühn-Popp, N., Meinhardt, J., Sodian, B., & Paulus, M. 2015. Long-term stability in children’s frontal EEG alpha asymmetry between 14-months and 83-months. International Journal of Developmental Neuroscience, 41, 110-114), we measured resting state alpha EEG in children at two measurement points. This user research article provides an overview of our study.

New video publication on infant EEG. “Novel Experimental and Analytical Approach to the Multimodal Neural Decoding of Intent During Social Interaction in Freely-behaving Human Infants”

A research group from University of Houston presented a novel methodology for the neural decoding of intent from freely-behaving infants during unscripted social interaction with an actor. Neural activity was acquired using actiCAP EEG electrodes. Kinematic data was collected with inertial measurement units and supplemented with synchronized video recording.

BCI-controlled “drone-tennis” demonstrated by Team PhyPA (German Television @ TV total)

“And now: A world premier…” was the announcement made by Stefan Raab, the host of the German late night show “TV total”, as members of Team PhyPA, our group of Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) research from the Department of Biological Psychology and Neuroergonomics at Berlin Institute of Technology, entered the stage.

  • Non-invasive brain-machine interfaces to powered exoskeletons for restoration of walking

Non-invasive brain-machine interfaces to powered exoskeletons for restoration of walking

This article reviews research at the University of Houston on the design of non-invasive and reliable brain-machine interface (BMI) systems for the control of powered exoskeletons for restoration and rehabilitation of gait in persons with paraplegia and other forms of paralysis.

Event-related brain potentials (ERPs) reveal neural substrates of cognitive flexibility

This user research summary is based on an article published as Rustamov, N., Rodriguez-Raecke, R., Timm, L., Agrawal, D., Dressler, D., Schrader, C., … Kopp, B. (in press). “Attention shifting in Parkinson’s disease: An analysis of behavioral and cortical responses”. Neuropsychology. which was designed to examine persistent (input selection) versus transient (input shifting) mechanisms of attention control in Parkinson’s disease (PD).
