Hi all my name is Ryan and I am a student of consciousness. I am interested in purchasing a EEG machine or similar device that will measure brain wave frequency. Where can I find one cheaply online or around the los angeles area? How difficult would it be to build my own? Also i would like to interface it with my laptop(mac)

What do you need it for?

A number of electrophysiology suppliers will have suitable electrophysiology equipment without going to the expense of a full EEG set up. I imagine ECG and EMG hardware and software would be suitable. A number of EEG biofeedback suppliers have their wares on the internet which include simple EEG devices.

it will mainly be used for meditation. just personal use. I would like to buy one pre-built if it is cheap enough. I am interested in having control of my brain waves such that I could enter particular brain states at will.

Yep. One of the items on my list of things to do when I get time, but for the moment I have access to a professional one.

I am very curious about any studies or peer reviewed journals featuring NeuroSky (or any other inexpensive eeg with limited contact points.)

I am a university student writing my thesis on neurofeedback and its application for a home meditation practice. If you all know of any information that I could site for my thesis I would be very grateful.

I am also looking for a grant so my school can purchase one of these (or similar) devices for our own meditation studies. Which device would you all suggest for meditation practice specifically?

Thanks so much,
-J

This post seems do have been unreplied for a while - but that might mean that some of the posters have had a lot more experience with EEG??

After all this time:

* Is there anyone who have tried to build it's own EEG device? How did it go? How much time did you use?

* Or have anyone found somewhere to by a cheap one that they can recommend?

* Or maybe you got someone to make you a device through the OpenEEG project?



Please let me know. Want a device, preferably one which makes it possible to store and analyse data on my computer.

Thanks!
