group's mandate is to design and prototype an inexpensive EEG/EMG
amplifier system to be used in research.
Though there are commercial EEG/EMG amplifiers available, they
are generally quite expensive and have several restrictive design
features. Our intention
is to produce a system that will meet or beat performance
characteristics of standard commercially available systems while
extending operational capabilities all at a reasonable production
Our EEG/EMG amplifier will act primarily as a signal amplifier and conditioner. It will receive the EEG/EMG signals from standard electrodes then amplify, condition and digitize these signals. Once in digital format, the signal data will be transferred by USB to a processing device, most likely a computing station, where the data may be further manipulated and analyzed or displayed.
