Combining mobile EEG and immersive VR to increase ecological validity in emotion research

Research on emotions often has low ecological validity, since participants view stimuli that should induce emotional states, but they do not experience real emotions in most experiments. We combined mobile EEG with an immersive fear of heights paradigm in VR to assess EEG correlates of fear with high ecological validity.

  • Translating visual perception from the lab to the real world using mobile EEG and mixed reality displays

Translating visual perception from the lab to the real world using mobile EEG and mixed reality displays

This research combines mobile EEG and augmented reality (AR) to study cognition. Participants completed three face inversion tasks: (1) computer-based, (2) mobile EEG with photographs, (3) mobile EEG with AR. We find face inversion effects in all tasks, concluding that mobile EEG and AR is a promising approach for research.

Hyperscanning series part 6: Sending Wireless Triggers to Multiple Receivers

Many of you might already be using the Wireless Trigger system to facilitate experiments that are utilizing the LiveAmp’s potential as a mobile amplifier. By pairing a single transmitter with multiple receivers, you can now maximize the possibilities of such a mobile experiment by adding more LiveAmps to run hyperscanning experiments.

Investigating mental workload-induced changes in cortical oxygenation and frontal theta activity during simulated flights: an interview with author, Anneke Hamann

In a recent publication, Anneke Hamann and Nils Carstengerde (German Aerospace Center, Institute of Flight Guidance) investigated pilots’ cognitive states using EEG & fNIRS and analyzed the effects of stepwise increased mental workload while controlling for fatigue. Here is an interview with the authors about their paper and their fascinating research.

Brain Products MoBI Award 2022: And the winners are …

The MoBI Award was designed to recognize excellence in the field of Mobile Brain/Body Imaging research. Taking your research out of the lab and into the real world is no easy feat and Brain Products wants to encourage and reward scientists who are doing so. In this article we proudly present this year’s winners!

  • Hyperscanning series part 4: How to do hyperscanning with trigger forwarding

Hyperscanning series part 4: How to do hyperscanning with trigger forwarding

In this hyperscanning series, we first introduced our gold standard solution based on BrainAmps, then a wireless solution using CGX Quick headsets and the StimTrigger, as well as the extremely flexible LSL solution. In this fourth part, we demonstrate another hardware-based option: using the trigger mirror mode which can be used with actiCHamp Plus and LiveAmp together with the Sensor & Trigger Extension.
