EEG Electrode Face Mask Charts Brain Activity
Electroencephalography, otherwise known as EEG, happens to be one of the better known methods when it comes to assessing one’s brain function. However, applying the electrodes onto the scalp and to have it function accurately is not exactly as easy as it looks to be, and is hardly ever used when it comes to clinical practice. In the event of an emergency, being able to figure out how the brain […]

This is not exactly rocket science, but the positive implications of such a contraption is definitely worth looking into – a resemblance of a handheld EEG unit. All it requires is an Emotiv headset that you should be able to pull off a […]

Researchers develop a way to detect epileptic seizures automatically
Epileptic seizures, caused by disruptions in the normal electrical activity of the brain can cause victims to suffer convulsions and unconsciousness. At the moment, there is no way to predict when such seizures would happen besides manually checking records of electrical activity of patient’s brains that have been recorded using EEGs (electroencephalograms). Normally it isn’t a problem to review EEG data, but when you have weeks’ worth of readings and […]

intendiX: a brain controlled laptop that lets you type with your mind
At CeBIT 2011 this week, Guger Technologies showed off their indendiX brain speller machine – an electroencephalography (EEG) device that lets users type with their minds. Using an electrode cap that detects brain waves from the user’s head and an amplifier that amplifies the waves to the machine, the intendiX can determine which characters a user wants to type based on what they are focusing on. It was touted to […]

Intendix hits the market
Intendix is touted to be the first patient-ready and commercially available brain computer interface in the world, debuting at CeBIT 2010. The Intendix system from Guger Technologies relies on a dorky-looking EEG cap which is used to measure brain activity, letting you type with nothing but thought power. It takes around 10 minutes of training before you are able to use it with aplomb, and will definitely come in handy […]
