EEG Signal Processing for Dummies. EEG Signal Processing for Dummies As promised in my previous post about Event-Related Potentials, I will explain the basics and standard steps commonly used in the analysis of EEG signals.

EEG Signal Processing for Dummies

There is a lot of literature and many concepts are involved in the field of EEG signal processing, and some of them can get very technical and difficult. That is why my aim in this post is to try to give a general overview of the different concepts without getting into too much detail. Figure 1: Basic steps applied in EEG data analysis. Welcome to the OpenEEG project. About the project Many people are interested in what is called neurofeedback or EEG biofeedback training, a generic mental training method which makes the trainee consciously aware of the general activity in the brain.

Welcome to the OpenEEG project

This method shows great potential for improving many mental capabilities and exploring consciousness. Other people want to do experiments with brain-computer interfaces or just want to have a look at their brain at work. Unfortunately, commercial EEG devices are generally too expensive to become a hobbyist tool or toy. Software for Brain Computer Interfaces and Real Time Neurosciences. Mind Reading (Neural Decoding) Goes Mainstream. Surfdaddy Orca November 9, 2009 In the new movie, The Men Who Stare at Goats, reporter Bob Wilton confronts Special Forces operator Lyn Cassady, “I’ve heard that you’re a psychic spy.”

Electroencephalography

Electroencephalography (EEG) is the recording of electrical activity along the scalp. EEG measures voltage fluctuations resulting from ionic current flows within the neurons of the brain.[1] In clinical contexts, EEG refers to the recording of the brain's spontaneous electrical activity over a short period of time, usually 20–40 minutes, as recorded from multiple electrodes placed on the scalp.

Play games developed specifically for the EPOC, or use the EmoKey to connect to current PC games and experience them in a completely new way. Video: Remote helicopter controlled by brain waves. A team at the University of Minnesota, led by biomedical engineering professor Bin He, have learned to use their thoughts to steer a flying robot around a gym, making it turn, rise, dip, and even sail through a ring.

Brain waves (EEG) are picked up by the electrodes of an EEG cap on the scalp. The system works thanks to the geography of the motor cortex—the area of the cerebrum that governs movement. When we move, or think about a movement, neurons in the motor cortex produce tiny electric currents. MyndPlay - Mind controlled movies and video training platform.

Getting all the way down to the 1 Hz frequency range of EEG requires communication through a digital port; in the current era this would be a USB connector.

EEG With an Arduino - chipstein - Nightly

A cheap and convenient device for recording and transmitting data through USB cables is the Arduino, which costs about $30 (less if you assemble your own). The Arduino performs reasonably fast analog--to-digital conversion and doubles as a platform for additional circuity. It's programmed as a serial port but automatically translates to USB. The software, including the Processing language, is open source, and large amounts of information are available on the internet for different platforms and applications.

Called the Cognitive Technology Threat Warning System (CT2WS), it will be used in a combat setting to significantly improve the US Army’s threat detection capabilities. Brain-computer Interfaces and the Social Order. Roland Schiefer October 15, 2012 Brain-computer interfaces are entering the mass market. Their current uses are either benevolent or harmless and they open a wide range of fascinating opportunities. However, they also pose serious risks that need to be identified and handled for the future. Thought Controlled Software Technologies. Neurosky MindWave - DEMO Spring 2011.
