Hyperscanning with CGX Quick Systems

Hyperscanning series part 2: How to do hyperscanning with CGX Quick Systems

by Eduardo Bellomo, Ph.D. Scientific Consultant (Brain Products) In the first article of the hyperscanning1 series, we discussed our gold-standard recommendations for hyperscanning with BrainAmp, our stationary, lab-based, modular system, which may be used with passive or active gel-based electrode technology. This is a great solution, but have you ever thought about bringing this setup…

Figure 1: Distribution of stimulation points in M1 (panel A) and mPFC (panel B), in the two experimental sessions (PE: blue dots; AE: red dots), represented in the MNI space by using a template cortical surface. Green dots represent the four electrodes surrounding the stimulated area, which were used for the efficiency analysis (see text and figure 6 for details).

Hyperscanning with BrainAmps (EEG): This figure demonstrates all the different options for hyperscanning with BrainAmps. Solid images indicate the minimum requirement, whereas transparent images show you optional additions, such as the ControlBox when using active electrodes. Note that PowerPacks can power up to two devices, but cannot be shared between participants. The fiberoptic cables from all the BrainAmps need to be connected to the BUA corresponding to the participant sequence. An optional trigger source is connected to the BUA via the TriggerBox and all triggers and signals are synchronized and saved on one single recording computer in a single file.

Hyperscanning series part 1: How to do hyperscanning with BrainAmps

by Dr. Alex Kreilinger Strategic Product Manager (Brain Products) This first part of the hyperscanning series introduces our current gold standard hardware solution for this application: the BrainAmps. Combining multiple BrainAmps allows using separate ground and reference channels for each participant and provides perfect clock synchronization in a single EEG recording file. Hyperscanning refers to…

Disinfection

Disinfection against SARS-CoV-2

by Dr. Christina Florence Lavallée Strategic Product Manager (Brain Products) Labs, universities and other research facilities are starting to re-open after the coronavirus lockdown, which means that many of you may be able to start recording EEG data once again. In order to support you in keeping yourselves and your participants as safe as possible,…
