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 […]

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 […]

Quick Tips for P300 Detection

As most of you may know P300 is one of the most studied and used event related potentials (ERP) in brain computer interfaces (BCI). This potential is usually elicited by the oddball paradigm in which series of low-probability target items are mixed with high-probability non-target ones. The person carrying out the BCI task is asked […]

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 […]

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 […]

Where to find available EEG data?

With our previous posts, we have been trying to provide our readers with a complete set of knowledge and tools for working with EEG and other physiological signals. We presented the basics of EEG signal processing, the practical usage of EEG signal processing related to emotions or Alzheimer, useful technologies like machine learning, practical guidelines for […]
