S05 EEG 1 Brain Rhythms

EEG 1 introduces electroencephalographic recording techniques. Students record EEG from the occipital lobe while performing a number of different tasks to demonstrate how the brains electrical activity varies depending on the task. The software filters the raw EEG signal to separate and display alpha, beta, delta, and theta rhythms.

Experimental Objectives

  1. To record an EEG from an awake, resting subject with eyes open and eyes closed.
  2. To identify and examine alpha, beta, delta, and theta components of the EEG complex
  3. To compare differences between male and female students.

Thermal Stimulator

The STMTHERM is a thermal stimulator that can deliver both hot and cold temperature stimulation to a subject. The STMTHERM can be used to identify participant thermoreceptor response thresholds for a variety of applications. The STMTHERM consists of two parts, the Stimulator Control Unit (SCU) and the included Thermal Stimulation Transducer (TSD191 Thermode) to deliver temperature […]
