Dry electrodes for EEG – Concluding workshop of the ANDREA European project Promoted by the partners of the ANDREA European project (www.andreaproject.eu), was meant to inform and educate everyone – beginners and experts – interested in EEG using dry and semi-dry electrodes. All related aspects, from novel electrode technologies and multi-channel EEG caps to specific electronics solutions and signal processing methods, were covered. A…
The secondment of Prof. Carlos Fonseca (partner UPORTO, Academia, Porto, Portugal) takes place from July to August 2017 at VS (Industry, Pescara, Italy).
On Monday, 03.07.2017, Prof. Haueisen gave an invited talk at the Christian-Albrechts-Universität zu Kiel, Germany, entitled “Bioelectric and biomagnetic signals of the brain: measurement techniques and source reconstruction”. About 40 PhD students and researchers of a DFG funded CRC on magnetoelectric sensors discussed new methods for brain measurements and data analysis.
The secondment of Prof. Jens Haueisen (partner TUIL, Academia, Ilmenau, Germany) takes place from July 1st until September 30th 2017 at VS (Industry, Pescara, Italy).
The local TV station MDR reported on a Summer University event for high school girls in Biomedical Engineering. In the “THÜRINGEN JOURNAL”, which is a news format for regional news from middle Germany, they reported on Thursday, 29.06. at 19:00 about the event at our University. Two PhD students, Stefanie Freitag and Eva-Maria Dölker, introduced our BME research and education programs to the 15 participants….
Prof. Fonseca and Patrique Fiedler respectively presented posters entitled: “Novel EEG Technologies for a more Functional and Accurate EEG Acquisition” and “Novel Cap Concepts for Rapid EEG with Dry Multipin Electrodes” at the 2017 European Medical and Biological Engineering conference, taking place 11th-15th of June 2017 in Tampere, Finland. About 30 scientists visited the posters and discussed about different dry and semi-dry electrode concepts, hydrogels…
This activity took place from May 30th to June 1st and was carried out in the framework of the “Sensor&Test Messe” exhibition of the Ilmenau University of Technology. The novel ANDREA dry EEG cap systems developed within the ANDREA project were on display. The system allows for EEG recordings without extensive preparation and is thus significantly advancing the state of the art of EEG recording…
On April 27th 2017 a fellow of the Institute of Biomedical Engineering and Informatics – Eva Maria Dölker – gave an interview for the radio station “Mitteldeutscher Rundfunk” (MDR, Central German Broadcasting) in the frame of the “Girl’s day 2017” at the Ilmenau University of Technology. Discussed topics included the measurement of bioelectric activity of the human body including electroencephalography, current research topics at the…
This activity took place on April 27th 2017 and it was carried out in the framework of the “Girl’s day 2017” at the Ilmenau University of Technology. Live demonstrations on various biosignal acquisition technologies including electroencephalography and electrocardiography were performed. The concepts and advantages of different sensor systems for bioelectric and biomagnetic signal acquisition were discussed with special focus on dry EEG. Multiple prototypes…
