Scientists Reveal How Watching 3D Is Like Brain Training

John Archer The ground-breaking experiment was the brainchild of neuroscientist and Associate Lecturer at London’s Goldsmiths University Patrick Fagan, together with so-called ‘thrill engineer’ Professor Brendan Walker of the Thrill Laboratory. Fagan was interested in seeing what effects watching 3D might have on the brain once the 3D viewing experience was over, while Walker […]

Validation of EMOTIV EPOC+ for extracting ERP correlates of emotional face processing

EMOTIV EPOC+ spatial mapping of the electrodes on the scalp

Krzysztof Kotowski, Katarzyna Stapor, Jacek Leski, Marian Kotas Abstract The article presents our proposed adaptation of the commercially available EMOTIV EPOC+ EEG headset for neuroscience research based on event-related brain potentials (ERP). It solves EMOTIV EPOC+ synchronization problems (common to most low-cost systems) by applying our proposed stimuli marking circuit. The second goal was to check the capabilities of our modification in […]

Designing a Brain Computer Interface Using EMOTIV Headset and Programming Languages

Abstract: In this paper, we explore the bio sensory headset EMOTIV EPOC+ in the context of brain computer interfaces which record the brain signals and convert them into keystrokes. Reinforced by programming language constructs, these signals were able to trigger the movements of the finch robot and switch lightbulb objects. The observation and analysis of […]
