Easycap EEG recording caps: An overview

by Falk Minow General Manager (Easycap GmbH)     Despite some interesting new developments in the area of EEG Recording Caps like sponge-and-saltwater-nets or dry-electrode-headsets, the majority of EEG research is still done with electrolyte-gel-filled-electrode-caps. Easycap manufactures caps with any channel number, any layout and for connection to any amplifier. This is not only for…

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…

BrainCap MR with Carbon Wire Loops

Coming soon: Carbon Wire Loops for the BrainCap MR

by Dr. Tracy Warbrick Application Specialist EEG-fMRI (Brain Products) Standard MR-related artifact correction methods are sufficient for most applications, however, data susceptible to motion artifact can be more challenging. So, we are very pleased to announce that we will be introducing carbon wire loops (CWLs) for the BrainCap MR to help with handling motion-related artifact.…
