g.tec’s brain-computer interface (BCI) workshop
Christoph Guger, PhD – g.tec medical engineering GmbH
Katrin Mayr – g.tec medical engineering GmbH
Brain-Computer Interfaces (BCIs) provide a direct connection from the human brain to a computer. Dr. Christoph Guger and Katrin Mayr will discuss how BCIs translate brain activity into control signals for numerous applications, including tools to help severely disabled users communicate and improve their quality of life. BCIs have been used to restore movement, assess cognitive functioning, map functions of the brain and provide communication and environmental control. Learn how to record ultra-high density EEG with 1024 EEG electrodes on the human scalp, how to use the Unicorn brain-interface and how to setup neuromodulation experiments.
They will also talk about BCI systems for the rehabilitation of neurological patients and how to assess brain functions in patients with disorders of consciousness. The cutting edge technology used in these systems have made them the first of their kind. Learn how upper and lower limbs of stroke and multiple sclerosis patients are treated to reach highly significant improvements even many years after the diagnosis and how to test objectively command following in DOC patients.
g.PANGOLIN is g.tec’s new Ultra High-Density EEG/EMG/ECG system that allows to decode e.g. individual finger movements using a total of 256 channels distributed over the contralateral sensorimotor cortex. Dense distribution and small-sized electrodes result in an inter-electrode distance of 8.6 mm (uHD EEG), while that of conventional EEG is 60 to 65 mm on average.
OSCAR is a real-time pre-processing module that removes motion, cable, blink, and other artifacts from EEG signals. It saves valuable time and enables BCI experiments under difficult conditions. OSCAR is suitable for anyone who wants to focus on the EEG instead of wasting their time cleaning it. In this video, you can see the original EEG recording without OSCAR and the EEG with OSCAR applied. You can see that the artefacts are completely gone and you’ll receive nice and clean high-quality EEG data.
Unicorn Hybrid Black lets you fly your drone just with your brainwaves. The 8-channel EEG headset is perfectly designed for students, developers, gamers and professors who need a high-quality EEG device for many different BCI applications.
Many stroke patients suffer from impaired mobility of hands, arms and legs or hemiplegia. But what can patients do after a stroke, when physiotherapy or occupational therapy don’t bring improvements anymore? The ambulatory recoveriX stroke therapy helps to achieve significant improvements of the upper and lower extremities.
Many people spend a lot of time to get clean CCEPs (cortico-cortical evoked potentials) to map cortical networks like the language network. CCEPs have been developed by Riki Matsumoto during his PhD. Nowadays, many labs are using it. In this video, we introduce you to a method that helps you to record clean, artifact-free and high-quality CCEPs.
