Topic: The Oldenburg approach to mobile EEG
In this talk I will present our approach on mobile EEG. The joint research cluster Hearing4All has the goal to better understand and to improve hearing where necessary. Our group’s project focuses on controlling hearing devices using the listener’s neural activity: instead of needing a remote control to select the optimal setting, the hearing device should seamlessly respond to its user’s intentions. For this it is necessary to record and to understand the neural activity related to hearing in daily life situations. To this end we have developed solutions for mobile EEG acquisitions that allow for concealed signal acquisition. With a combination of mobile EEG, ear-centered EEG (cEEGrid, eartrode) and mobile signal acquisition (smartphone based) we can study the aspects of auditory attention inside and outside the lab. Here I will talk about our approach to mobile EEG and will present a number of studies we have conducted on auditory attention. Further, I will present an overview of a number of studies in our lab that use mobile EEG, for example to study social interactions or aspects of neurorehabilitation.
The lecture will be followed by a gathering, back at BRAMS in the conference room, with live demos of mobile EEG technology (N. Hieda & R. Cassini).
