Stimulus Presentation solutions for your EEG experiments

Neuroscientists usually need presenting stimuli as well as behavioral monitoring while recording brain activity. Several software solutions can be found out there that fit the minimum requirements an experiment might have in that regard. I am compiling and commenting here on some of them. I will appreciate very much your comments in case I am […]

Enobio at the outer space. A step closer

Enobio at the outer space. This is a think I personally would love to see happen. Our device has already been in a lot of different scenarios so far. From the classical ones, considering this type of device, like research labs or hospitals, to other more “exotic” ones, like parabolic flights, art exhibitions, festivals, or monitoring top athletes in action. Might the outer space […]

From the lab to the Market: The experience lab

The path from lab research to the market is a tough one. Nearly all funding research calls ask you to report on your exploitation plans, so you need to figure out how the outcomes of your research could go to the market. The truth is that it is not always possible to materialize your findings on an actual product or service.   Here […]

Moving Neuroscience out of the lab

Recently in Starlab we conducted some recordings out of the lab. We equipped some volunteers with a bunch of EEG, ECG and GSR sensors along with a GoPro cam so we could capture electro-physiological signals as well as volunteers’ point of view during the whole experiment. The idea was to record people while visiting an […]

Applied Neuroscience from scratch

It has been six years since I started working in Starlab. For the first year and a half I was involved in projects from the Space department inside the company. Then I became a member of the Applied Neuroscience team. By that time I asked myself what could I do, a complete neuroscience outsider, in […]

Synchronizing your EEG recordings

So you’ve got tons of mega bytes of EEG data from a big recording campaign with several volunteers. You persuaded them to wear your EEG recording device for 40 minutes, performing several mental tasks and receiving all types of external stimuli. You are now ready to process the data and confirm your breakthrough hypothesis. Well, […]

Spoofing biometric systems or just trying?

In a previous post I talked about biometric systems and how electro-physiological signals such as the EEG and the ECG can be combined to obtain a reliable biometric system. Today I’d like to continue from where I left you last time. I specifically want to tell you about one of the main challenges such systems […]
