To record bipolar EEG, you will need an EEG amplifier for each pair of electrodes that you want to calculate the potential difference between. It is important to note that you can also derive bipolar measurements from unipolar measurements. This is done in software. For example, if you are recording from sites A, B, C in unipolar you can then get the following bipolar measurements:
AB by calculating A-B
BC by calculating B-C
AC by calculating A-C
If you want to look at all possible pairs, you can calculate the combinations without repetition: n!/(r!(n-r)!) where n is the number of electrodes and r is 2.
For example, for a bipolar recording on 5 sites you would need 5!/(2!3!) = 10 EEG amplifiers. This assumes that you want to look at the potential difference between all possible combinations of electrode sites. This is the maximum number of EEG amplifiers that would be required.
Here is a reference for the number of EEG amplifiers required if you need to look at all electrode pair potential differences:
Continuous…Easy to use…Reproducible & Validated The NIBP100D-HD noninvasive blood pressure system provides a continuous, beat-to-beat, blood pressure signal recorded from the fingers of a subject. Simple and noninvasive—finger sensor provides accurate & immediate feedback: arterial BP, cardiac output, fluid and hemodynamic status. Measure noninvasive BP parameters (BP, sBP, dBP, mBP, and PR) plus hemodynamic parameters (PPV, […]
Recent Studies using BIOPACs MP-Series (MP160, MP150) data recorders, ECG Amplifiers, and BioNomadix Wireless recorders: Singing style to infants Mothers around the world sing to infants, presumably to regulate their mood and arousal. Lullabies and playsongs differ stylistically and have distinctive goals. Mothers sing lullabies to soothe and calm infants, and playsongs to engage and […]
Alex Dimov, BIOPAC Sales Executive, was interviewed at the Neuromarketing World Forum by Inside Marketing to discuss how virtual reality can improve marketing research. Alex explains how VR can be used to present virtual iterations of a product to save time and money, and notes that measuring physiological responses adds lots of information for product and messaging […]
