Independent Research Validates B-Alert X10 Wireless EEG Metrics
B-Alert X10 offers mobile, wireless acquisition of 9 channels of high fidelity EEG plus ECG, and AcqKnowledge adds powerful analysis tools, including automated scoring and reporting options. Independent research publications demonstrating how B-Alert X10 EEG Metrics are generalizing across environments include:
Accelerated Learning: Optimizing Surgeon Training
Brain activity was monitored during all tasks with a B-Alert X10 neuro headset and sensor placement including locations over the frontal, central, parietal, and occipital regions. Output analysis included cognitive metrics for cognitive engagement, mental workload, and mental state.

Characterizing the Expertise and Proficiency of Surgeons
EEG was acquired during all tasks using the B-Alert X10 wireless EEG system. Subject’s alertness level was classified using the B-Alert Cognitive State Metric (sleep onset, distraction, low engagement, or high engagement.) The Workload Metric provided a second-by-second measure of cognitive working memory load.

Cognitive State Assessment: Examination of EEG-based Measures on a Stroop Task
This investigation used the B-Alert X-10 with sensor sites positioned in accordance with the 10-20 system. The B-Alert software suite ensured the EEG was recording within prescribed impedance tolerances, provided three baseline cognitive assessment tasks, acquired raw data, performed decontamination, and provided B-Alert’s cognitive state and workload metrics.
