1. Neuronal Activity

1. Neuronal Activity

The electrodes should be placed under the cap (included). Locate them around the area you want to record. This could be left or right, or a specific region.
foc.us use active electrodes which contain a tiny amplifier. The voltages detected by the electrodes are sent to the EEG amplifier.

2. Collected & Transmitted

2. Collected & Transmitted

The EEG Dev Kit is a miniature DSP computer with an ARM processor, Wi-Fi and internal storage.
The signal from the electrodes is converted from analog to 24bit digital using the Texas Instruments ads1299 chip.
The data can now be stored locally on the device or streamed in realtime over 802.11G Wi-Fi.

3. Cloud Processing

3. Cloud Processing

Included with your Dev Kit is access to foc.us/me - our cloud platform for neuroscience research and education.
Record raw data, apply filters and visuallize power spectral data.
If you prefer to use A.N. Other EEG software solution simply update the MQTT settings and your data will flow there instead. No lock in.

  • Firing Synapses

    Firing Synapses

    Synapses Fire

    An electrical synapse is a conductive link between two neighboring neurons that is formed at a narrow gap between the pre- and postsynaptic neurons (known as a gap junction).
    An action potential triggers the presynaptic neuron to release neurotransmitters.
    These molecules bind to receptors on the postsynaptic cell and make it more or less likely to fire an action potential.

    Helpful Tidbits:

    Accounts: The store account is different from the EEG Dev kit account

    Setting up Wifi - Make sure to add all the Wifi Connections upfront when you connect to the "EEG-DK" hotspot from your phone or laptop. You can override it later but it can be a pain.

    Best way to Test Wifi:
    1) Visit http://foc.us/me/#/device
    2) Look at Connected - Red Off / Green On
    3) Turn your EEG Dev Kit On - Red should go to Green and a message saying "Device is On" should pop up at the bottom of the page
    4) If your device was on, you can turn it off and should see message "Device turned off" and Green Should go to Red

    Updating FIrmware: To update your device - unplug it and turn off, re-insert power adapter, and wait. If your device can connect to Wifi it will grab the latest firmware and update itself. You will see a white flashing light.

    How Test:
    1) Unplug power - Reduces Noise
    2) Plug in one Dual Active Dry Electrode Pairs in the [1][2] slot. Optional also do [3][4], [5][6], [7][8]
    3) Power on
    4) Visit http://foc.us/me/#/settings and turn on channels
    5) See Readings in multiple places

    c) http://foc.us/me/#/graph-radar
    d) http://foc.us/me/#/graph-gauges

    Recording Session Results: http://foc.us/me/#/sessions
    * After recording, it takes a while for them to be processed.

    excited for fnirs!

    The data quality from this device is extremely high, way higher than I expected.
    Importing EDF into matlab is simple and powerful.
    Very excited to try the fnirs sensor.

    Good, but a few issues

    Good product and I can definitely see the future of it, but a couple of issues.

    1) Prior to charging I could use the battery. After charging, the unit will not power on without the charger attached.
    2) How do you get the leads attached to the headset so they will stay?
    3) No instructions provided, nor are there any available online
    4) The menu on the app nor the page works on chrome, it's cut off about 1/7th of the full menu so you can't read the options.

    Again, great product but needs some work to become mainstream.
