actiCHamp EEG Multichannel EEG - electroencephalography  is the recording of electrical activity along the scalp. EEG measures voltage fluctuations resulting from ionic current flows within the neurons of the brain. A version of the EEG technique include evoked potentials (EP), which involves averaging the EEG activity time-locked to the presentation of a stimulus of some sort (visual, somatosensory, or auditory). Event-related potentials (ERPs) refer to averaged EEG responses that are time-locked to more complex processing of stimuli; this technique is used in cognitive science, cognitive psychology, and psychophysiological research.
BrainStim

The BrainStim Stimulator with its wide range of stimulation paradigms, has been developed and validated as a technique to enhance rehabilitation in a variety of central nervous system pathologies (migraine, depressive states, epilepsy, motion disorders, language disorders, spasticity, tinnitus, memory disorders, Parkinson’s, etc.

The BrainStim Stimulator is programmed by adedicated computer software package. It communicates with the control computer via an integrated Bluetooth wireless interface. The appropriate therapeutic protocol is created in the computer software and saved on the BrainStim unit ready for use on a patient or subject.

fastrack

Polhemus Fastrak allows obtaining the coordinates of the electrodes in space and points of the surface of the head. This, in turn, makes possible to combine an MRI image of the head and brain with the real location of the electrodes on the surface of the head. This leads to creating a 3D model of all electrode locations with respect to the head surface. Further processing allow one to co-localise the head surface obtained from the MR images with that acquired using Fastrak digitization procedure, which, in turn, allows interpolation of the position of electrodes over the real cerebral cortex. Ultimately, these procedures allow to model the cortical sources of activity on the grey matter surface.
