Brain-to-brain communication

Some would say that my mom is a bit eccentric … When we were little, she would have us play a fun game … well, I remember this happening at least once probably around 1975. The game was … telepathy. My siblings and I would sit around for a while trying to transmit each other thoughts. […]

On the importance of negative results

This blog has included a fair amount of posts about research studies, as well as about tools, procedures and tips. With all this content, we intend to give you all the ingredients to enter the fascinating world of research and applications of applied neuroscience. Let’s say you get inspired reading the blog and want to […]

Measuring the effect of meditation using EEG

During the next weeks in Starlab/Neuroelectrics we will conduct a study on meditation patterns measured in EEG brain signals. First of all, I would say that previously I had no idea about what mediation was, I have never practiced yoga or any other meditation technique, and obviously I am far from being an expert in […]

Then a voice saying: Coca Cola the taste […]

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 […]

EEG and Space

EEG researchers are opening new frontiers for exploring the human brain beyond the Earth. EEG research on humans in space travel is becoming a key field in order to improve pilots and astronauts training and well-being. Through Neuroelectrics’ mother company Starlab we have strong links to the Space industry and the European Space Agency and […]

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 […]

8 BCI Software Apps you Can’t Live Without

A few months ago David Ibañez published a post with the top 3 applications for BCI. Today I intend to expand that list and review other software packages for BCI and offer you some other alternatives. This time we won’t only focus on packages ready to work out-of-the-box, so we’ll also include libraries and frameworks […]
