g.tec News | October 2018
New: g.Nautilus fNIRS 64

g.Nautilus fNIRS is g.tec’s new wireless EEG (Electroencephalogram) and fNIRS (functional near-infrared spectroscopy) acquisition system. fNIRS allows you to assess the oxygenation status and hemodynamics of the brain non-invasively. The system combines both signals in a single device. In combination with g.tec’s active electrode technology, you will get top quality EEG recordings from 64/32/16/8 EEG channels and 8 fNIRS channels within a few minutes. Read more: g.Nautilus fNIRS

EEG recording during TMS stimulation

TMS is a magnetic method to non-invasively stimulate the brain and is often combined with EEG for motor rehabilitation and other clinical research applications. g.HIamp, g.USBamp and g.Nautilus can be used during TMS stimulation with g.HIsys and data can be analyzed offline with g.BSanalyze

Hardware and software updates

  • New g.HIsys release for Windows 10 and MATLAB 2017a: new baseline correction block for framed signals, new frame blending block to eliminate e.g. TMS artifacts, new acceleration calibration block for g.Nautilus, new g.HIamp impedance check for TMS electrode connector box; g.SCOPE: visualize amplitude spectrum, power spectrum or power spectrum density next to EEG data; paradigm presenter: generic audio, video, text and picture paradigm presenter; release of new toolboxes: cVEP BCI, SOCI BCI, CSP BCI, distributed EEG, EMG/EOG control, g.ESTIM FES Simulink Interface, hybrid BCI, P300 BCI, Physio Observer, Ping Pong game, SSVEP, UDP Interface and eye-tracking interface for Tobii glasses
  • New g.RTanalyze release for Windows 10 and MATLAB 2017a with improved performances; g.Estim PRO and g.Estim FES: new release for Windows 10 and MATLAB 2017a
  • New g.Converter: convert g.Recorder and g.HIsys files into EDF and GDF file formats
  • New g.Nautilus fNIRS+EEG: Combine 8/16/32/64 EEG channels with 8 fNIRS recordings
  • New Python Interface for g.HIamp, g.Nautilus and g.USBamp
  • New g.BSanalyze for Windows 10 and MATLAB 2017a
  • New g.BCIsys for Windows 10 and MATLAB 2017a

BCI Spotlight: Applications and research of customers and partners!

Signal quality check: g.LADYbird and g.SAHARA performed best in comparison tests

A brand-new article from Thea Radüntz showed that the g.Nautilus g.LADYbird with active gel electrodes and the g.Nautilus g.SAHARA with active dry electrodes outperform other wireless head-sets. The Frontiers publication compares the number of artifacts in the EEG data during resting with eyes-open and resting with eyes-closed, playing a computer game or performing a cognitive task for 60 minutes altogether.
