About the OpenEEG project
Many people are interested in what is called neurofeedback or EEG biofeedback training, a generic mental training method which makes the trainee consciously aware of the general activity in the brain. This method shows great potential for improving many mental capabilities and exploring consciousness. Other people want to do experiments with brain-computer interfaces or just want to have a look at their brain at work.
Unfortunately, commercial EEG devices are generally too expensive to become a hobbyist tool or toy.

A method to turn memories on and off with the flip of a switch, has been developed by the scientists.
Using an electronic system that duplicates the neural signals associated with memory, they managed to replicate the brain function in rats associated with long-term learned behaviour, even when the rats had been drugged to forget.
“Flip the switch on, and the rats remember. Flip it off, and the rats forget,” said Theodore Berger of the USC Viterbi School of Engineering‘s department of biomedical engineering.

Electroencephalography (EEG) records the electrical signals produced by the brain using an array of electrodes placed on the scalp. Computers use an algorithm called common spatial pattern (CSP) to translate these signals into commands for the control of various devices.
Haiping Lu at the A*A*STAR Institute for Infocomm Research and co-workers have now developed an improved version of CSP for classifying EEG signals. The new algorithm will facilitate the development of advanced brain–computer interfaces that may one day enable paralyzed patients to control devices such as computers and robotic arms.

A new biomedical engineering concentration in the Ph.D. in engineering degree program will be offered by the University of New Mexico School of Engineering starting Fall 2011. UNM is also seeking permission from the State of New Mexico to offer a Master’s Degree in Biomedical Engineering.
Together, the M.S. and Ph.D. programs will form a complete graduate program in biomedical engineering, the only such program in New Mexico. The programs will prepare students for positions in academia and in laboratories across the nation and worldwide, as well as in the large number of biotech companies in New Mexico.
