Abstract
ANALYTIC BIOPHYSICS CORPORATION HAS DEVELOPED NON CONTACT ELECTRODES FOR ELECTROCARDIOLOGY (PATENT PENDING). WE PROPOSE TO EXTEND THIS TECHNOLOGY TO THE HIGHER SENSITIVITY LEVEL REQUIRED FOR EEG. IN STAGE I WE PROPOSE TO CONSTRUCT AND EVALUATE A HELMET CONTAINING FOUR NON CONTACT EEG ELECTRODE CHANNELS. THE OUTPUTS OF THESE FOUR CHANNELS WOULD BE RECORDED AND COMPARED WITH FOUR SIMULTANEOUSLY RECORDED STANDARD HARD WIRE ELECTRODE CHANNELS. INCLUDED IS A REVIEW OF THE PROBLEMS ASSOCIATED WITH NON CONTACT EEG ELECTRODE TECHNOLOGY. WE CONCLUDE THAT NO COMMERCIALLY AVAILABLE AMPLIFIERS OR INTEGRATED CIRCUITS ARE CAPABLE OF ACHIEVING THIS TASK. THE PRINCIPAL INVESTIGATOR HAS DEVELOPED A PROPRIETARY ULTA LOW NOISE AMPLIFIER TECHNOLOGY.WE FEEL THIS UNIQUE TECHNOLOGY IS A NECESSITY FOR SUCCESSFUL ACHIEVEMENT OF THIS GOAL.
