Joël Caserus (aka Brainwave-JCP) a prolific EEG enthusiast has kindly posted a page about the Brainwave Analyzer: http://www.joel-caserus.net/brainwave-analyzer/ He also writes about the mind at:…
EEG readings are divided up in EEG bands: Delta, Theta, Alpha, Beta and Gamma (from slowest to fastest).
Now a walk-through (Part 3 of 3) of using your Mindwave and OpenVibe to save a sample of your brainwaves to a file.
Start Neurosky’s “Thinkgear Connector”, and make sure the “Starting port” is correct.
Start “openvibe acquisition server”, and choose a driver “Neurosky Mindset”
Click on “Driver Properties”, and make sure the “COM Port” is correct” and you’ll want a “Sampling frequency” of 512.
Click on “Connect”, then once it is connected, click on “Play”.
Note, here is OpenVibe – Part 1
This next part is about creating two boxes (processing algorithms), one to view your live brainwaves, and one to save the brainwave readings to a file (to be used for later analysis).
Box 1 – Signal Display
The first step is to start the OpenVibe Designer, and open the “generic-stream-reader.xml” (if you are not sure how, see OpenVibe – Part 1).
Create an OpenVibe folder C:OpenVibe
Next Save the “generic-stream-reader.xml” as “acquisition-signal-display.xml” in the C:OpenVibe folder.
On the right-hand side of the OpenVibe Designer are the components of the processing algorithms.
