g.NEEDaccess - Network Enabled Easy Data Access Interface 

g.NEEDaccess is a server service that facilitates simple and platform independent data acquisition from (multiple) devices over a network, which greatly eases the user's workload.
g.NEEDaccess allows you to acquire data easily from g.tec devices without having to take care of low-level concepts of data acquisition. The server handles acquisition and preprocessing of data such that the user receives data ready to analyze.

Software Updates - g.HIsys SIMULINK Highspeed Online Processing 

Some new functions are available in the new versions:

  • The g.VECTORscope provides a convenient way to display frame-based data. It is designed with a focus on performance and is able to visualize large amounts of data with high sampling rates.
  • The g.SENSORadaption block adapts the input signal of g.tec's sensors. It takes the voltage input provided by the sensor and converts it to sensor-type related values.
  • The Automatic Batch Start block can automatically start signal processing calculations from Simulink after your experiment.
  • The g.AUDIOoutput block allows you to play sound outputs on the speakers of the PC via Simulink.
  • The Paradigm block can be used for audio, picture, video and text paradigms. It uses the ActiveX plugin of the VLC media player to present audio, picture and video stimulations. The block provides timing information of targets, non-targets and stimulation onset. The paradigm is configured using a standard text editor.
  • The Select Events block selects event codes from the incoming events. For each change of the incoming event code from zero to a non-zero value, the event codes are compared to specified event codes for selection.
  • A EEGLAB plugin now allows you to import recorded data from g.tec devices.

BNCI Horizon 2020 - Roadmap published 

The final version of the roadmap of the BNCI Horizon 2020 project for the field of brain-computer interfaces was recently published.
The main objective of this roadmap is to provide a global perspective on the BCI field now and in the future. For readers not familiar with BCIs, basic terminology and concepts are introduced. It is discussed what BCIs are, what BCIs can do, and who can benefit from BCIs. The BNCI Horizon 2020 group illustrates their arguments with use cases to support the main messages.
