Mount and check signals of 16 EEG electrodes in less than 1 minute....

g.tec performed an experiment where 16 active dry EEG electrodes (g.SAHARAelectrode) where mounted. As electrode cap the g.GAMMAcap2 was used. The EEG data was recorded with the new 256 channel biosignal amplifier called g.HIamp.

The combination of these new developments leads to a pathbreaking assembling time for EEG electrodes!

In less than 1 minute, 16 EEG electrodes where mounted and the signal was checked – excellent EEG signals were recorded.

On Youtube you can see…

Pain and Itch

Neuroscience Bulletin, the official publication of Chinese Neuroscience Society, has just published a special issue on Pain and Itch (Volume 28, Number 2 / April 2012). This special issue provides a timely focus on recent progress in our understanding of the mechanisms of pain and itch. We hope this issue will provoke new studies that provide a better understanding of the mechanisms underlying pain and itch, eventually leading to more effective treatments of devastating chronic pain and itch…

Brain-Injury Data Used to Map Intelligence in the Brain

Scientists report that they have mapped the physical architecture of intelligence in the brain. Theirs is one of the largest and most comprehensive analyses so far of the brain structures vital to general intelligence and to specific aspects of intellectual functioning, such as verbal comprehension and working memory.

Their study, published in Brain: A Journal of Neurology, is unique in that it enlisted an…

The bell jar



Conscious experience is a bell jar shaped by historical and environmental forces. What we call ‘ordinary experience’ is fashioned by exposure during early childhood and a sensory-network that has evolved over eons of earthly habitation. Recent findings published in the journal Proceeding of the Academy of Sciences help support my bell jar theory. They show that the sensory world is tuned by exposure early in life. Children growing up in cultures…

Therapeutic writing



Writing has been shown to replace ruminating. Ruminating is generally thought of as mental activity devoted to replaying past traumatic experience. It is a well-known contributor to clinical depression. That’s why writing workshops are often included in the treatment of depression. However, ruminating over future events, such as taking a high-stakes exam or something, can be equally disruptive. In this case, ruminating often leads to “choking” where…

Neuroscientists Identify How the Brain Works to Select What We (Want To) See

If you are looking for a particular object -- say a yellow pencil -- on a cluttered desk, how does your brain work to visually locate it?

For the first time, a team led by Carnegie Mellon University neuroscientists has identified how different neural regions communicate to determine what to visually pay attention to and what to ignore. This finding is a major discovery for visual cognition and will guide future research…

Measuring the Dialogue Between Cortical Areas in Non-Communicating Patients

We know that conscious experience can be entirely generated within the brain as in the case, for instance, when we dream and we are completely disconnected from the external world. However, we normally assess another individual's level of consciousness solely based on her/his ability to interact with the external environment. This discrepancy becomes particularly relevant in the case of patients who survive severe brain injuries, who may recover consciousness…
