There’s a reason computers, cell phones, and even basic remote controls come with instructions: We need to learn how to use them. “But imagine a device,” says Tan Le, founder and president of Emotiv Systems, an electronics company focused on brain-computer interfaces, “that learns how to use you.” In December, Le unveiled the company’s first […]

FMCG Packaging A-B Testing using VR and Emotiv Mobile EEG Headsets

By VR-ify   Abstract Large food, drink and snack brands spend billions of dollars each year to release new products. The packaging of these products is often decided by a handful of marketeers/ designers, because it would be too expensive to conduct a large consumer A/B test with different packagings in real stores. With virtual […]

World First Brain Drone Race

An interesting test of one’s cognitive ability and mental endurance requiring competitors to ‘out-focus’ an opponent in a drone drag race fueled by electrical signals emitted from the brain. Wearable EEG systems have incredible potential for so many applications and the data we acquire is crucial in advancing our understanding of the brain’s function and […]

A Fitbit for the brain is around the corner

By Betsy Isaacson at Newsweek   Every time you blink, think or move, your brain generates electricity as individual neurons in the skull transmit information needed to make it happen. If we could detect the electrical signals produced by individual neurons, we could, in theory, read a person’s mind.Amazing. And exceedingly difficult. The amount of […]

This Technology May Eliminate Student Daydreaming

By Feral Bell   Abstract There are few things more frustrating for a teacher than seeing their students switch off during class. The time and energy spent checking whether children are actively listening or whether they have drifted off could certainly be better used elsewhere. Enter Emotiv, a US-based technology company, which has come up […]

Musical Neurofeedback for Treating Depression in Elderly People

Frontiers in Neuroscience. Rafael Ramirez, Manel Palencia-Lefler, Sergio Giraldo and Zacharias Vamvakousis Abstract We introduce a new neurofeedback approach, which allows users to manipulate expressive parameters in music performances using their emotional state, and we present the results of a pilot clinical experiment applying the approach to alleviate depression in elderly people. Ten adults (9 female […]

Introducing Neuroberry, a platform for pervasive EEG signaling in the IoT domain

5th EAI International Conference on Wireless Mobile Communication and Healthcare – “Transforming healthcare through innovations in mobile and wireless technologies”, At London, Great Britain. Evdokimos Konstantinidis, Nicola Conci, Giorgos Bamparopoulos, Panagiotis D Bamidis   Abstract The emergence of inexpensive off-the-shelf wireless EEG (electroencephalography) devices led researchers to explore novel paradigms in the field of Human Computer Interaction.

Using Wireless EEG Signals to Assess Memory Workload in the n-Back Task

Human-Machine Systems, IEEE, 2015   Abstract Assessment of mental workload using physiological measures, especially EEG (electroencephalography) signals, is an active area. Recently, a number of wireless acquisition systems to measure EEG and other physiological signals have become available. Few studies have applied such wireless systems to assess cognitive workload and evaluate their performance. This paper presents an […]

Nat Geo: Portable Brain-Scan Headsets: 4 Incredible Applications

By Brian Handwerk, for National Geographic   Our brain controls what we think, feel, and do, but scientists have a limited capability to watch it at work outside the lab. National Geographic Emerging Explorer Tan Le hopes to change that while, in the process, fighting neurological disorders, enhancing learning, and even helping the disabled move […]

A Fractal-Based Algorithm of Emotion Recognition from EEG Using Arousal-Valence Model

Olga Sourina, Yisi Liu.Nanyang Technological University, Nanyang Ave, Singapore Abstract Emotion recognition from EEG could be used in many applications as it allows us to know the “inner” emotion regardless of the human facial expression, behaviour, or verbal communication. In this paper, we proposed and described a novel fractal dimension (FD) based emotion recognition algorithm using an Arousal-Valence […]

Are we there yet? Exploring distance perception in urban environments with mobile EEG

School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, National Technical University of Athens, Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis, The Bartlett, University College London, 2015   Abstract This paper explores the use of mobile EEG (electroencephalography) in the study of environmental perception and the ways the perception of physical measurements of a space may affect individual walking behaviour. The hypothesis of this […]

P300 and EMOTIV EPOC: Does EMOTIV EPOC capture real EEG?

Hiran Ekanayake   Abstract P300 (or P3) is one of the components in an ERP waveform (Illustration 2). It is a positive deflection in voltage (2-5μV) with a latency of about 300-600 ms from the stimulus onset. It is typically measured by placing electrodes covering the regions Fz, Cz and Pz (Illustration 1). Since the strength of […]
