Getting started with EEG


#1

Hello all,
As a newbie that just got my Ganglion board, I would like to read as much as I can about EEG. That includes: books or scientific articles about EEG in general, neurofeedback, ERP (from the theoritical prospective to the practical as well, but I’m afraid that 4 channels is considered too little to play with ERP).

So far I have gathered/read these that I found really helpful:

http://www.ebme.co.uk/articles/clinical-engineering/56-introduction-to-eeg
https://irenevigueguix.wordpress.com/ (really liked the post about mu waves!)

I know it’s kind of “too general” post but I would really appreciate your response.

Good question @celtic_harp. Most of the resources I’ve found focus either on the clinical or theoretical side of things: there seems to be a shortage of resources for amateur neuroscience. But here are a few things that might be handy:

I started a series on the topic when I first noticed the dearth of educational material aimed at DIY neurogeeks. I put it on hold when I started doing actual experiments, but I’m planning to pick it up again, and polish & publish the final four posts, in the near future.

I’ll check my bookmarks for other books and articles that might be of interest.

Thank you, yes, that would be very helpful.
I already started studying the resources you mentioned… thank you!

Hello @celtic_harp,

I can suggest you a little bibliography largely “tested” in educational activities regarding eeg and erp.

As starting points to be introduced to EEG/ERP studies:

  • Ernst Niedermeyere (2005) - Electroencephalography, 5th Edition.

  • Kamel Nidal & Aamir Saeed Malik (2014) - EEG/ERP Analysis - Methods and Applications.

  • Sacid Sanei & J. A. Chambers (2007) - EEG Signal Processing.

Regarding Neurofeedback and more advanced readings::

  • Budzynski T.H., Budzynski H.K., Evans J.R., Abarbanel A. (2008) - Introduction to Quantitative EEG and Neurofeedback - Advanced Theory and Applications.

  • Fengyu Cong (2015) - Advanced Signal Processing on Brain Event-Related Potentials - Filtering ERPs in Time, Frequency and Space Domains Sequentially and Simultaneously.

This is not a “rule”.
A good placement allows you to have a good probability to fetch something.

Thank you very much for your recommendations. I am now about to finish Demos’ book and I think the next one will be EEG/ERP Analysis - Methods and Applications.
Introduction to Quantitative EEG and Neurofeedback also seems interesting but quite more advanced for my level.
Thank you again! :slight_smile:
