Another update from my side: I asked Neuroguide if they would be willing to develop a customer-version of Neuroguide for use with freecap, but they never answered. Then I asked the company, which developed the freecap (link above) if they plan to work together with a software-developer to bring the freecap to consumer-level – they never answered. Maybe I will call them by phone someday …
Then I contacted another doc in Munich, which offers NF via hometraining. This could be interesting for you @Jay: He uses Myndlift which itself utilises Muses headband to connect a single electrode to it with which the training is done. I’ll try it out and post another update.
When I asked him why there was no company offering hometraining with a fullhead-set like freecap he told me from his opinion in gneral (so not only regarding hometraining) the approach “the more data the better” is not always the best. In his opinion the more electrodes you use in conjunction with Loreta the bigger the risk that you get a crapy signal. Because Loreta uses the signals from all electrodes to generate a 3D-model of the brain for training – so if one electrode transfers bad signal quality the general result was crap. So he’s a fan of using less electrodes – which transfer signals that are good – to train only specific brain areas. And he also told me that this opinion is often discussed with colleagues from university – so no holy grail in sight yet, I guess.
