Active Electrode Building Guide

You will get more help if you send an email to the OpenEEG mailing list. Also, check out Olimex if you're interested in buying a preassembled active electrode. This guide should help you to build Active Electrodes for the modularEEG, as proposed by Jarek Foltynsky here. The active electrodes described here correspond to the modified circuit diagram suggested by Joerg Hansmann: MindFlex xbee eeg hack. Heyo guys, this is my last ultimate hack for the mindflex. I wanted to reproduced the results of the mindflex as indicated by the manufacturer.The simplest test that can be done with an EEG device is to check if the alpha waves go up significantly when closing your eyes. However doing some test with different subjects (i.e. my guinea pig students/friends) and with or without electrogel I couldn’t find any prove that the neurosky chip is working properly.

I will be happy if somebody can reproduce a high alpha activity with closed eyes. I could only see some random peaks in the alpha activity during closed eyes which were not stable. Mindflex hack. Arturo Vidich, Sofy Yuditskaya, and I needed a way to read brains for our Mental Block project last fall.

After looking at the options, we decided that hacking a toy EEG would be the cheapest / fastest way to get the data we wanted. Here’s how we did it. The Options A non-exhaustive list of the consumer-level options for building a brain-computer interface: Open EEG offers a wealth of hardware schematics, notes, and free software for building your own EEG system.

The Nerosky MindSet is a reasonable deal as well — it’s wireless, supported, and plays nicely with the company’s free developer tools. For our purposes, though, it was still a bit spendy. Given all of this, I think the Mind Flex represents a sweet spot on the price / performance curve. But first, the inevitable caveat: Use extreme caution when working with any kind of voltage around your brain, particularly when wall power is involved. Thinking Cap. Mindmachine. Solson EEG. Biosemi. OCZ Neural Impulse Actuator. EEG/EKG Schematics by +1+1+1. EEG & EKG (ECG) Schematics last updated 7-Jan 2005 I developed my 4-channel, dual-purpose EEG/ECG box between September 2003 and March or April of 2004 with the gracious help of David Rosenboom at Calarts for use in my medi[t]ations sound performance series.

EEG/EKG Schematics by +1+1+1

We combined schematics from his book Biofeedback and the Arts (available thru Frog Peak Press) with schematics from the article "Computers On The Brain" by Steve Ciarcia (in the June 1998 issue of BYTE magazine). We are also indebted to Ronald Kuivila who was instrumental in unlocking the mystery of how to get the low-frequency audio signal into my computer and subsequently into SuperCollider...

Okay, here are the schematics: pdf | postscript file | parts list (coming soon) And here are some potentially helpful links to cheap electrodes, electronics parts, resources, etc Here's what my baby looks like... OLIMEX. ModularEEG. General information The ModularEEG device is made up of two or more EEG amplifiers, and a 6-channel signal capture board that connects to a PC via a standard serial cable.


The standard setup has two EEG channels. As with any EEG device that you build yourself, there is a risk of injury involved. Brainclinics. J&J Engineering. QDS System. BioExplorer Software BioExplorer is a Windows program for real-time biophysical data acquisition, processing, and display.

About the project ModularEEG has been around for some years. The car industry has progressed by about 1 and ½ car model generations during this period, technology moves on. ModularEEG is a well performing device and should still be the design of choice for beginners. Disadvantages of ModularEEG are the following: In today's RS232-less world, needing to fiddle with RS232-USB converters is clumsy;Having to use a wall-wart mains adapter is also a pain;The 10-bit resolution, although adequate, is on the low side.

Pceeg. ScEEG. Sound Card EEG (ScEEG) Technology This web site is focused on sound card EEG hardware and software experimentation to create a Brain-to-Computer Interface (BCI).


Several types of EEG units have been built to date, a dual channel AM unit, a dual channel FM unit, A four channel AM unit, and a four channel multiplexed unit. The FM unit uses approximately 4.5 kHz of audio spectrum per channel while the AM unit uses approximately 2 kHz of spectrum (with some guard band allocation) per channel. The first attempt in building a prototype sound card EEG unit was begun in July 2005 . The first unit consisted of a two channel AM modulated version with a built-in power supply. The second prototype was a single channel AM unit that reduced the modulation circuitry and the size of the unit was reduced to 2" by 4".
