An exercise on muscle control and agency

An exercise on muscle control and agency

Carima and I tested out the BrainSynth in new ways. Here follow her notes . I focussed on one muscle,  the trapezius, testing its function and capacity for movement. We separated the electrodes on 3 different places on the same muscle, so that I could explore these 3...
Testing surface EMG positions

Testing surface EMG positions

Today tested some potentially interesting locations for surface EMG. For each you’ll find a video below. Note that only the lower MATLAB frequency plot is informative: Flexors of fingers Flexor of thumb Biceps Contractor of forehead (surprise expression) All...
EEGsynth & Dance

EEGsynth & Dance

Today we were able to have a first try using the EEGsynth for dance, with the dancer/choreographer Carima Neusser, resulting in many new ideas and lots of inspiration! Small movements – such as an eyeblink – can be magnified and experienced. An Iphone...
MIDI control & output working

MIDI control & output working

I recorded a short demonstration of the BrainSynth using real-time recordings of heartbeat (ECG), muscle activity (EMG) and eyeblinks (EOG). Ofcourse the brain is just as possible, but harder to demonstrate on my own :-). Importantly, we can use any MIDI controller to...
