What an Explorer’s Brain Revealed about Edinburgh

National Geographic explorer Dan Raven-Ellison uses the EPOC+ to record EEG data of his journey across Edinburgh.

 

As Dan walked across Edinburgh his progress was tracked using the GPS on his phone, and synced with the EEG data from EMOTIV’s EPOC+ measuring activity in his brain. By comparing Dan’s geographic location with his levels of engagement, stress, interest, focus, excitement, and relaxation, we can begin to understand how different environments affect our moods. This knowledge can help urban planners to build cities that are not only technologically smart, but are also designed to optimize our health, happiness, and quality of life.
