BrainAmp MR: Superior solution for combining EEG and fMRI
Over recent years the combination of EEG and fMRI to investigate both electrophysiological and hemodynamic information with respect to cerebral dynamics has become an extremely popular technique. The first BrainAmp MR system for EEG/fMRI simultaneous acquisition was manufactured by Brain Products almost 13 years ago and it represented a real technological breakthrough.
Extremely high data quality, ease of use, extensively experienced developers and unparalleled scientific and technical support have made the BrainAmp MR amplifier the first choice for researchers world wide. Numerous scientific publications cite to EEG/fMRI coregistration studies performed with the BrainAmp MR systems.
Technical reasons for Brain Products success with this system are as follows:
The BrainAmp MR is a shielded amplifier which sits directly inside the MRI chamber positioned right behind the subjects head. The short cable length required to connect the electrode cap with the amplifier complies with all safety requirements for the experimental subject. Data thus digitized close to the subjects head and sent via fiber optic cable to the USB interface located in the control room remains free of artifacts which could be collected along the route out of the MRI chamber using other available methodologies.
Sturdy and compact , the BrainAmp MR, which is powered by the rechargeable battery PowerPack, can be stacked one on one to acquire up to 128 EEG channels with ease. It can be combined with the MR compatible ExG amplifiers to record bipolar and peripheral signals (e.g. EOG, ECG, EMG, GSR – Galvanic Skin Response, etc.) in an extremely compact setup.
