cEEGrids: Concealed, Unobtrusive Ear-Centered EEG Acquisition
Martin G. Bleichner and Stefan Debener from University of Oldenburg, Germany, created the cEEGrids: an EEG system motion tolerant, highly portable, unobtrusive, and near invisible data acquisition with minimum disturbance of a user's daily activities. This new solution represents one more important step in the portability of EEG that can be used in a much more natural way.
We discuss work showing that miniature electrodes placed in and around the human ear are a feasible solution, as they are sensitive enough to pick up electrical signals stemming from various brain and non-brain sources. We also describe the cEEGrid flex-printed sensor array, which enables unobtrusive multi-channel EEG acquisition from around the ear. In a number of validation studies we found that the cEEGrid enables the recording of meaningful continuous EEG, event-related potentials and neural oscillations.
