A guide to peripheral physiology measurements using the BrainAmp ExG MR – Part 1: Let’s focus on EMG

by Dr. Tracy Warbrick (Brain Products Application Specialist EEG-fMRI) and Dr. Robert Stoermer (Brain Products Head of Technical Support) Abstract Measuring peripheral physiological signals during fMRI can add valuable information about physiological processes to your studies. Our BrainAmp ExG MR can be used to record bipolar signals such as surface EMG and ECG, and signals…

Offline analysis of sensor data in BrainVision Analyzer 2

by Dipl.-Psych. Michael Hoppstädter and Dr.-Ing. Kidist Mideksa Scientific Consultants (Brain Products) BrainVision Analyzer 2 was originally designed to process EEG data and analyze ERPs. However, the data from sensors measuring peripheral physiological signals resembles EEG in many aspects. Therefore, Analyzer 2 can also be used for such signals. Please note that Analyzer 2 often…

Sensor Tutorial: How to obtain useful peripheral physiological signals without prior knowledge

by Dr. Robert Störmer Head of Technical Support (Brain Products) Since the very beginning, all Brain Products EEG systems were designed for co-registration of peripheral physiological signals. Over the years, our Technical Support Team identified the most frequent questions and our team member Dr. Stefania Geraci started to compile a tutorial, in which many of…
