Abstract:

Advanced Brain Monitoring (ABM) developed patented low cost, easy-to-use, portable systems to monitor and interpret physiological signals, including the brain''s electrical activity (EEG) and cardiac activity. These technologies can be applied in real-time or off-line and have proven useful in quantifying the changes in alertness, learning and memory associated with sleep deprivation in healthy subjects and as a biobehavioral assay for identifying vulnerability to the effects of sleep deprivation. The wireless EEG system proved valid, robust and reliable in over 1000 human subject studies conducted to date, however, there are features of the current design that continue to limit the widespread adoption of the technologies. The goal of this project is to create the next generation system, incorporating innovative state-of-the-art materials and design concepts to address the needs of current and future customers. A custom designed flexible circuit will allow multiple options to be evaluated for EEG scalp-sensor interface that can provide a continuous secure contact over hair without causing discomfort to the user. The electronic components of the wireless headset will be further miniaturized and housed in an enclosure that is suitable for location on different regions of the head.
