EEG is an important tool in medicine and neuroscience. Electroencephalography (EEG) is a brain monitoring technique where electrode arrays are mounted on the scalp to detect signals with frequencies > 0.5 Hz originating from the brain. EEG is used often as a medical tool to diagnose epilepsy, sleep disorders, or measure depth of anesthesia, for example. For this project, the team will investigate the conductive medium between the skin and electrode for use in full band EEG (fbEEG). Future applications for fbEEG may include medical and commercial applications ranging from measuring consumer preference to monitoring secondary brain injury after stroke, brain hemorrhage, and severe brain trauma.
