An increasing number of research applications require online access to EEG data streams. For example, when signal features of the EEG are used to trigger Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) pulses, or where algorithms in BCI applications are used to provide immediate responses, minimum latencies and high accuracy become increasingly important.
Therefore, Brain Products is developing the “TurboLink” interface which allows for accessing and streaming EEG data from the actiCHamp (Plus) within less than 1.5 msec via User Datagram Protocol (UDP). This enables connection to the sync2brain bossdevice for data processing and precise execution of brain stimulation (i.e. TMS) protocols. The bossdevice offers programmable real-time processing functionality via Simulink Real-Time.
