Top 7 Weirdest EEG Applications

As we know, the main uses of EEG include diagnosis and neurofeedback therapy (including BCI). Theses applications falls into the clinical realm, but there are many more applications, some of them quite strange to say the least. One important point before starting this post: EEG and BCI are nowadays mainly used for clinical purposes, but […]

European Applied Neuroscience Projects

As I have mentioned some times in previous posts, I am pretty sure that in the next years we will see great advances in the field of neuroscience. The 20th century was the century of physics, with great discoveries such as the theory of relativity and quantum physics, among others. I reckon the 21st century […]

EEG features

In a previous post, I explained the basic steps in EEG data analysis. Now I will go trough the type of EEG featuresmost commonly used inEEG applications. First of all, we have to understand that an EEG signal is a discrete time series (or a set of discrete time series if we consider more than […]

Stress and EEG

Some time ago we carried out an experiment in Starlab to see if we could find stress markers in EEG signals. This research was done within the Interstress European project. The positive results of this experiment were also used as a part of my PhD thesis. I will briefly explain in this post the experiment […]

Modern History of Neuroscience

A few months ago I wrote “The Unknown History of Brain Science” in which I briefly covered the evolution of Neuroscience up to the discovery of the EEG by Hans Berger in 1929. Much more has happened since. Let’s see the most break-through discoveries that happened in this last 100 years or so. In my […]

14 Event Related Potentials – Components and Modalities

To celebrate my 14th post in Neuroelectrics blog, I have decided to share 14 different ERP components and modalities with you. I presume you know a bit about ERP’s, or else please have a look at the basic ERP concepts explained in my previous post “Event-Related Potential: Our Brain Response To External Stimuli” before going […]

EEG and Complex Networks

A graph is a powerful mathematical tool useful to study and represent the interaction of certain datasets. In an abstract way, we can think about a number of mathematical entities that interact between each other. The entities would be represented by nodes (also called vertices) and their interactions by connections between those nodes (those interactions […]

Invasive vs Non-Invasive EEG… Ready to become a Cyborg?

Researchers working on the field of Neuroscience have surely sometimes thought about this question. It might sound like Sci-Fi for the common laymen, but neuro-implants are a reality nowadays. In this post I would like to give an introduction to the different brain recording techniques and comment the pros and cons of invasive vs. non-invasive […]
