Mental Work using a Motorized Wheel

The École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) in Switzerland, as a new demonstration of brainwave reading technology. It will involve EEG being connected to a motorized wheel. People will be controlling the movement of the device while the data their brainwaves generate will be anonymized, collected, and provided to researchers for study.

“The industrial revolution was a dangerous period in history, literally dangerous for the laborer who might lose a hand while not paying attention. Now we are in the cognitive revolution and the stakes are potentially higher. Today, that won’t happen because you are not in touch with the machine in any physical way. Instead, you may lose your mind.”

Typing 100 Words in a Smartphone using just Your Mind

As I published during June 2017, Facebook aims to allow people to type 100 words per minute with just your mind, 5X faster than typing on a smartphone. Knowing the technological evolution that we are living, in your opinion, how many years Facebook will need to create this BCI solution? The possible answers are: 2 years, 5 years, 10 years, 20 years or never. Share your opinion pressing here.

Brain Sciences Journal

Brain Sciences is a peer-reviewed scientific journal that publishes original articles, critical reviews, research notes and short communications in the areas of cognitive neuroscience, developmental neuroscience, molecular and cellular neuroscience, neural engineering, neuroimaging, neurolinguistics, clinical neuroscience, systems neuroscience, and theoretical and computational neuroscience. 

Our aim is to encourage scientists to publish their experimental and theoretical results in as much detail as possible. There is no restriction on the length of the papers. The full experimental details must be provided so that the results can be reproduced. Electronic files or software regarding the full details of the calculation and experimental procedure, if unable to be published in a normal way, can be deposited as supplementary material.

EEGrunt: A Collection Python EEG

EEGrunt consists of a collection of functions for reading EEG data from CSV files, converting and filtering it in various ways, and finally generating pretty and informative visualizations.


  • EEGrunt is compatible with data from OpenBCI and Muse.
  • EEGrunt has bandpass, notch, and highpass filters for cleaning up powerline interference, OpenBCI's DC offset, and zeroing in on the frequency band you want to analyze.
  • EEGrunt makes it easy to generate signal plots, amplitude trend graphs, spectrograms, and FFT (fast-fouier transform) graphs, etc.

Here is my small code adaptation from the original file:

# Download the required files from
import EEGrunt
source = 'openbci'
path = 'data/'
filename = 'eegrunt-obci-ovibe-test-data.csv'
session_title = "OpenBCI EEGrunt Test Data"

EEG = EEGrunt.EEGrunt(path, filename, source, session_title)
EEG.plot = 'show'

print "\n\n\nChannels:" + str(EEG.channels)

for channel in EEG.channels:
    print("Processing channel "+ str(
    EEG.get_spectrum_data() = EEG.bandpass(0,1)
    EEG.plot_spectrum_avg_fft( )
