[ISEA2019] Workshop: Haein Kang —- Gentle Introduction to EEG

Workshop Statement

For: Anyone interested in brain waves and/or brain-computer interface

The workshop aims to understand the principle of brain waves and experience brain-computer interfaces. It consists of a lecture and experiments. The lecture is on three questions: What is EEG? Is the electrical signal detected in the scalp a manifestation of our consciousness? How can brain waves be used to control the computer system? Workshop participants will observe their brainwaves and will experience brain-computer interfaces using the OpenBCI system. An eight-page handout described in the illustrations is ready.
