Immersive 3D Games for ADHD Neurofeedback Training

High levels of inattention, impulsivity and hyperactivity in children can be the symptoms of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), the most common psychiatric disorder in children. ADHD appears in early childhood and its first line of treatment is often medication, generally drugs based on components such as amphetamines or amphetamine-class drugs that can induce numerous […]

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 […]

Artifacts Contaminating Your EEG Recordings

EEG is one of the biological potentials with lowest amplitude (typically a few microvolts). It is highly sensitive and is likely to be contaminated by undesired non cerebral potentials coming from biological or external sources. These unwanted signals dirtying your recording are called artifacts. Even though there are more, through this post I will try […]

Introducing Neuroelectrics’ Wiki!

At Neuroelectrics and Starlab we intend to stimulate activity in the areas we work in and we are convinced that one of the ways of achieving this is by publicly sharing our knowledge on different topics we find interesting. Following this philosophy, more than a year ago we started the blog you are now reading, […]

tDCS clinical research – recent highlights: Pain

Is transcranial current stimulation (tCS, including direct current, tDCS, alternating current,  tACS, or random noise stimulation tRNS) effective? Now that is a good and difficult question! Let me try to review recent developments.  In a recent post I provided an overview of tCS in Stroke. Here I do the same but for Pain. Please let […]

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 […]

HC2 Summer School 2013

The HC2 (Human Computer Confluence) project originally emerged out of various European research initiatives aiming at fundamental and strategic research studying how the emerging symbiotic relation between humans and ICT (Information and Communication Technologies) can be based on radically new forms of sensing, perception, interaction and understanding. The HC2 project just organised its 2nd summer school in order to share scientific knowledge […]

Audio neurofeedback

Today, instead of writing about something I’ve worked on or something I know, I want to do something different: I want to learn about something together with you, the readers. There’s a particular application which I don’t know much about, and I’d like to learn or read about it. And I thought that writing here […]

Affordance and Sensory Feedback in Brain Computer Interfaces

At our recent HC2 Summer School we had a talk from Atau Tanaka on Embodied Sonic Interaction and how we might explore “possibilities of actions in the technologically augmented everyday”. An important part of this idea is the psychological basis for affordance and the potential for musical and sonic affordance. In another talk Joe Paradiso […]
