211 – EEG Analysis With AcqKnowledge

The AcqKnowledge software will record EEG data, filter the data into the specific bandwidths for Alpha, Theta, Beta and Delta, and display the results on-line. Often, researchers also need to quantify the activity in each band.

This Application Note provides a useful technique for analyzing EEG signals and quantifying the activity in each band. This note will explain how to:

  1. Integrate the alpha wave EEG data to get a better view of alpha wave activity.
  2. Identify where the integrated data crosses certain threshold values.
  3. Measure the amount of time that was spent in a heightened alpha state and count the number of times that the subject entered the state.

This note describes the procedure for working off-line with a saved data file, but you can also perform these functions online (as noted at each step).

 
The examples in this note use a raw EEG signal taken from a human subject and filtered to show the Alpha wave activity.

Eye Tracking Fundamentals

Eyes are the window to the soul and, more importantly, the brain. Psychophysiology, neuroscience, and consumer neuroscience researchers use eye tracking technology to understand emotion, behavior, subject response, decision-making, and human performance—and to help improve products and services. But not everyone knows where to start or how and why to use this important technology. A panel of eye tracking experts will present typical use cases and the latest eye tracking technology.

Watch this on-demand presentation with Q&A to learn the fundamentals of eye tracking!
