In our last newsletter issue, we proudly introduced the new TriggerBox Plus. Now, we want to provide some more information on how this new and enhanced version of the TriggerBox changes the way you can interact with this device and how you can make the best use of its new features.
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.
Here we introduce a step-by-step guide for both LSL markers and hardware triggers with Brain Products and various stimulus presentation software programs that will ensure you are ready to start your experiments with the most accurate timing possible.
Until recently, there has been little information about EEG data quality and safety when used with newer multi-band (MB) fMRI sequences. Here, we measure the relative heating of a MB protocol compared with a standard single-band (SB) protocol considered to be safe. We also evaluated EEG quality recorded concurrently with the MB protocol on humans.
More and more applications require a setup which allows, data access within minimal time, but maximal reliability. We recently released TurboLink for actiCHamp (Plus) and partnered up with sync2brain and their bossdevice RESEARCH to offer a solution that makes sure you can always rely on the performance of your hardware setup.
So far, this series covered hyperscanning with BrainAmp amplifiers as well as with CGX Quick headsets. Part 3 introduces a more general approach, which is based on LabStreamingLayer (LSL).
In this article, based on our current work, we compared transcranial evoked potentials recorded with active and passive electrodes. Signals obtained with the two methods did not statistically differ in amplitude and topography, and showed a high degree of similarity across the scalp. We conclude that active electrodes are a viable solution for studies combining transcranial magnetic stimulation and electroencephalography.
The sound of silence: an EEG study of how musicians time pauses in individual and joint music performance
We recently investigated how musical partners resolve unmeasured expressive silences in musical interaction. Partners resolved shorter silences more synchronously than longer silences; partners also displayed enhanced neural markers of motor preparation for shorter relative to longer silences. Thus, shorter silences in interaction may facilitate interpersonal coordination.
Are you looking for extensions for BrainVision Analyzer 2? They are called Solutions! Scientists from various fields of research use them to tweak Analyzer to their needs. Analysis of non-EEG sensor data, sleep data, single trials and time-frequency domain exports are only some examples where users can benefit from our solutions.
We are excited to let you know that Carbon Wire Loops (CWL) for the BrainCap MR are now available to order. This solution is extremely helpful for the correction of motion related artefacts.
