Uwe Graichen at EEM
During his secondment at partner EEM, Uwe Graichen joined Carlos Fonseca and Paulo Pedrosa from partner UPORTO. Several aspects of the EEG acquisition system design were addressed in order proceed with the development of the novel EEG acquisition technology. Exemplary aspects were: 1) Selection of integrated circuit components related to embedded software; 2) Specification of system requirements with respect to embedded software; 3) Support for…
Paulo Pedrosa at EEM
During his secondment at partner EEM, Paulo Pedrosa was joined by Carlos Fonseca, also from partner UPORTO. The purpose of the secondment of Paulo Pedrosa to EEM was to discuss the optimization of the coating procedure of the multipin dry electrodes. The discussion focused on several key issues: 1) the deformation of the base plates; 2) possible improvement of the fixation procedure; 3) the scaling-up…
Carlos Fonseca at EEM
During his secondment at partner EEM, Carlos Fonseca was joined by Paulo Pedrosa, also from partner UPORTO. The purpose of the secondment of Carlos Fonseca to EEM was to assess whether the developed coating procedure produced any damage to the polyurethane substrate. The best coating procedure was identified. Dry electrode testing for EEG acquisitions were performed.
Lucia Velluto at UPORTO
from: Villa Serena
The purpose of the secondment of Lucia Velluto at partner UPORTO was to transfer part of her expertise in clinical neurology and multimodal acquisitions in neuroscience to the technical staff members of UPORTO. In particular, Lucia Velluto contributed to the identification of the disadvantages of gel-based electrodes that should be overcome with the dry electrode concept. She also contributed to assess issues such as patient…
Edson Filho at EEM
The purpose of the secondment of Edson Filho was to collaborate with the staff members of partner EEM to develop experimental protocols involving the use of a dry-electrode EEG system that are suitable for sport applications. To this aim, an extensive review of the literature was made, and EEG acquisitions during table tennis matches were performed.
Frank Zanow at TUIL
