The currently available peripheral modalities are:
nIR HEG (near infrared hemoencephalography) from Dr. Hershel Toomim (BioComp Research Institute) (AUX – uses Toomim or PulseOx pod)
pIR HEG (passive infrared hemoencephalograpy) from Dr. Jeffrey Carmen (AUX – uses temp pod)
Temperature (hand sensor) (AUX)
Skin Conductance Response (hand or finger sensors) (EEG Input)
Photo-oximetry – Blood Pulse Wave (BPW) (AUX)
Photo-oximetry – Heart Rate (HR)
Photo-oximetry – Heart Rate Variability (HRV) (AUX)
Photo-oximetry – pO2 Oxygen saturation (AUX)
Note: Photo-oximetry can be done using finger, ear, or forehead sensors.
Respiratory Effort Belt (1, 2, or up to 4 sensors can be used) (EEG Input)
At this time, a 2×2 can accept two of the above interfaces, and a 4×4 can accept 4. This is because each interface uses 2 channels, because both signal and reference data are acquired. Devices marked (EEG Input) use the EEG inputs, devices marked (AUX) use the AUX inputs.
These modalities can be trained in a variety of ways, with feedback including sound, graphics, animations, music, DVD’s, and Flash Games.
We are currently developing additional modalities including heart rate and HRV, skin conductance, and others.
