Lower Cost, complexity Recording Brain Activity

 Recording a test subject’s brain activity. Device Developed for Easier Link Between Brain, Computer, Body

Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology (Russia), January 19, 2022  in SkolTech

A customizable brain activity recording device developed by Russian and U.S. researchers is more compact and affordable than current commercial solutions, and generates high-quality signals. The 150-gram (5-ounce) electroencephalographer costs just $350 to build, less than half the cost of commercial counterparts, and is roughly a half-centimeter (about 0.2 inches) in diameter. The researchers have made the instructions for building the device, along with accompanying documentation and software, openly available on GitHub. Said Mikhail Lebedev at Russia's Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology, "The more convenient and affordable such devices become, the more chances there are this would drive the home lab movement, with some of the research on brain-computer interfaces migrating from large science centers to small-scale amateur projects."
