Brain Vision UK PyCorder - Brain Vision UK


Python-based open source acquisition software

Open Source recording of data is of partiular importance to many researchers to allow them to independently control their data. Brain Products developed the PyCorder which is is a real open source acquisition program, to meet this demand. It is based on the Python programming language, for setting up the BrainVision actiCHamp amplifier and storing data.

Product specifications:

  • PyCorder offers unlimited control of the running processes: You can intervene at any point in the data acquisition step and configure the software according to your scientific requirements.
  • It not only allows to modify recording settings, but also permits user-defined modules to be integrated depending on the given research application.
  • As the source code is available you can improve and adapt PyCorder to meet your individual needs.
  • It integrates seamlessly with BrainVision Analyzer 2, our commercial analysis software for neurophysiology research as well as with EEGLAB, BrainVision ERPLAB, and other mainstream analysis products, making it very simple for you to read and process your data.
  • actiCHamp data can be streamed to any RDA client (e.g. BCI2000, OpenViBE, BCILAB, BBCI2VR, MATLABĀ®, C/C++, Python) for realtime BCI/Biofeedback data analysis.


Please note: PyCorder is intended to be used for research applications only and is not sold, designed or intended to be used as medical devices as defined in EU Directive 93/42/EEC, nor is it intended to be used for other medical applications such as diagnosis or treatment of disease.
