Because It's Possible

    This made me laugh so I thought I would share it

  • tDCS Clinical Trials

    I've been noticing a growing number of announcements of clinical trials investigating the efficacy of transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS). Eventually, they were getting hard to ignore. So I got to wondering whether this was just me or whether there was genuinely an identifiable increase.

    A lot of the trials are announced on, so that’s the first place I looked. Here’s a graph of the number of trials that were announced each year since the inception of the site in February 2000.

    So it certainly does seem that there has been a huge increase in the number of clinical tDCS trials being undertaken. These are not all medical in nature. Many published trials involve investigation of the effects of tDCS on healthy participants.

    The vast majority of the clinical trials have not published results yet, but we at greatly welcome these. The scientific studies conducted in universities tend to have smaller sample sizes and, as we know, meta-analyses of these have had mixed outcome.

    Clinical trials tend to have larger samples sizes so they can throw valuable light on just how effective tDCS interventions are. We'll be following and reporting on the results as best we can.

  • EEG Dev Kit Offer Extended Until At Least Saturday 7th July

    England won only their second cup penalty shoot-out at the 8th attempt!

    That means you can still get a focus EEG Dev Kit for ~25% off until the next game on Saturday 7th July.

    What an emotional night.

  • 2018 World Cup Special Offer

    To celebrate England reaching the knock-out stages of the 2018 World Cup we are offering 25% off the EEG Only Dev Kit.

    The EEG Dev Kit is an 8 channel low-noise 24 bit analog biopotential amplifier featuring WiFi and 8GB of onboard EDF+ storage. With dry active electrodes it's easy to setup and use and can be controlled from your phone or computer.

    Perfect for recording your emotional state as your team (or England) progress to the latter stages of the tournament.

    This offer only lasts until England are knocked out, so act soon or keep fingers crossed for England!

  • June 9th Update

    A quick update on the latest developments at focus towers:

    • is coming to iPhones and iPads pending app store approval.
    • fNIRS sensor update coming soon - see picture below for teaser
    • Remaining Go Flow and V2 stock almost gone - last chance for both

    Can you guess what it is?


  • The effects of Transcranial Alternating Current Stimulation (tACS) at Individual Alpha Peak Frequency (iAPF) on motor cortex excitability of young and elderly adults

    Interesting new paper about tACS and peak alpha :


    Transcranial alternating current stimulation (tACS) was shown to modulate brain oscillation, cortical excitability and behaviour. This technique allows for the direct perturbation of brain oscillation such as the EEG alpha wave (8–12 Hz). In aging, there is correlation between the decrease in alpha activity and the profound cognitive and motor impairments. Studies suggest a state-dependent effect of tACS on alpha activity: upregulation of alpha oscillations only occurs in conditions of low alpha power (e.g. in the elderly).


    Remember, the v3 is the only brain stimulator that has rippled current designed to increase your peak alpha.

  • V3 in stock & back-orders shipped are pleased to confirm that all V3 backorders were shipped on Monday and that the V3 is now in stock for delivery.

    There were about 10 suppliers involved with this project and a couple were new to us. New supplier relationships can take a little time on both sides to establish some trust and understanding. So whilst the delays are always regretted they can be propitious.

    Our attention now returns to finishing the fNIRS sensor. We have made a few unannounced tweaks to the specification have that we are excited to share with you soon.
