Abstract

This workshop will benefit both new users who are just entering the field of electroencephalography (EEG), and
those that are well established. We will show some of the latest technologies that will put your research at the
cutting edge. We also invite attendees of the workshop to predict what directions the EEG field will evolve to next.

The Fast-Changing Landscape of Electroencephalography workshop is designed to give both novice and
experienced EEG users a synopsis of the latest innovations in EEG. EEG is the recording of brain electrical activity
from the scalp. The EEG measures the difference in potentials between electrodes generated by ionic currents
flowing within neurons of the brain. For many years, EEG has had limited use due to its poor signal quality, low
spatial resolution, and non-portability. Even with these limitations, EEG is still a standard practice in clinical
settings such as diagnosis of epilepsy and for research such as brain computer interfacing. In recent years,
electrodes, signal acquisition hardware, and signal processing software have undergone major improvements
allowing new and improved applications of EEG. We will provide presentations and demos from five industry
innovators on their latest technologies for acquiring and processing EEG. The target audience of the workshop is
the broad community of the IEEE EMBS Society and anyone interested in recording brain signals.
