Paperback launched: A Step-by-Step Guide to Collecting and Analyzing EEG Data with Emotiv EPOC Neuroheadset Series & EEGLAB MATLAB

A few people have been asking for the paperback version of the eBook because they felt that having this step-by-step guide in printed format would be more useful to them. The paperback edition is now available here: Paperback version (96 pages) for those interested in printed books.

The following is a summary of content of the book, followed by the table to contents, for your reference:

This book covers a step-by-step guide on the mechanics of setting up, collecting, processing, and visualizing raw EEG data (brainwaves) using Emotiv EPOC neuroheadset series with the EEGLAB (MATLAB) compiled environment open-source software. The step-by-step guide covered in this volume covers the basic mechanics and is not about complex or one-off EEG cases. This guide is ideal for people who want to get into EEG research, using Emotiv & EEGLAB, but do not know how to start. This guide should work well with all of the EPOC neuroheadset series; the EPOC, EPOC+, as well as EPOCx neuroheadsets. Whether you are a researcher, practitioner, or simply interested in the human brain, you will find it useful to study brainwaves primarily because brain frequencies tend to tell us how humans respond to stimuli at the neurological level. EEG data (brain frequencies or brainwaves) has several benefits compared to other imaging techniques or pure behavioral observations. This manual is the type of step-by-step guide that I wished I had when I was doing my grad studies. If you are interested in human brainwaves and want to learn one particular way of collecting and analyzing raw brain frequencies (EEG data), this volume is for you! By the end of this eBook, you will feel confident and uplifted enough to autonomously collect, analyze, and visualize raw brainwaves (EEG data). You will also feel confident to expand on the scope of this volume and showcase your EEG data analysis.
