Investigation of novel surface coatings to improve the electrochemical characteristics of dry electrodes for the recording of electroencephalogram.


Runtime: 2016

Funded by 


With the emergence of commercially available dry electrodes for EEG, hope has been raised for easy-to-use brain-computer interface (BCI) applications in clinical and home-use scenarios. However, signal quality of existing dry electrode solutions still is significantly lower than that of clinical-grade EEG systems, which use gel to establish an electrical connection with the scalp.

Put-The-Coat-On is a collaborative project with the ElectroActive Coatings group. It thrives to improve the electrochemical characteristics of dry EEG electrodes using novel coating methods. The objective assessment of an electrode's signal quality is performed using a battery of BCI experiments.
