Neurotechnology Introduces BrainAccess Development Kit for Brain-Computer Interface Applications

Neurotechnology today announced the launch of the BrainAccess Development Kit. The kit offers a full dry-contact electroencephalography (EEG) solution including the electrodes, headware, electroencephalograph, EEG signal acquisition and processing software and brain-computer interface (BCI) example algorithms. The BrainAccess Development Kit can be used to develop applications where a person controls a computer or other device through activities such as eye movements, visual focus, relaxation state or other subtle changes that can be detected in the user’s EEG signal patterns.
