Abstract(s)Electrode and cap concepts for continuous and ubiquitous monitoring of brain activity will open up new fields of application and contribute to increased use of electroencephalography (EEG) in clinical routine, neurosciences, brain-computer-interfacing and out-of-the-lab monitoring. However, mobile and unobtrusive applications are currently hindered by the lack of applicable convenient and reliable electrode and cap systems. We propose a novel modular electrode concept based on a flexible polymer substrate, coated with electrically conductive metallic films. The overall concept enables design adaptation to different head regions and cap designs. We describe the single modules of the system and investigate the influence of electrode pin number, coating material and adduction force on electrode-skin impedance and perceived wearing comfort. Our results contribute to rapid and comfortable multichannel dry EEG.
