Low-Cost Neural Monitoring for Makers: Bringing EEG to the Citizen Scientist

Serious neuroscience may appear to be beyond the reach of the maker community, the intelligent citizen-scientist with no formal training, and under-resourced schools or science clubs. Enabling the Maker community to conduct useful neuroscience research and use signals from the brain--such as that generated by electroencephalography (EEG)--to drive vehicles, control avatars, and conduct brain research is very important for science education. Here, we will discuss and demonstrate multiple devices currently in development that can monitor brain states for about $30. The community can contribute to their design and testing at a website.
