My own involvement in this topic is that I have worked in the NeuroTechnology Lab for two years. To the best of my ability, this text has been written impartially, without any attempt at promoting the work of me or my colleagues. Presently I am citing a lot of conference abstracts from a recent conference in Orlando, Florida. These will have url's added after the 20th of september, when the EMBS transfers the abstracts to the ieeexplorer-website. Mikkelsen.kaare (talk) 13:23, 9 September 2016 (UTC)

Proposal: Add info about the Kokoon EEG headphones to this page[edit]

Kokoon EEG headphones, showing the inside right ear cup with electrodes.

Hi! I just came across this page when doing a bit of research after my new headphones arrived, and felt like the statement at the end of the opening paragraph was probably incorrect. That is, this one:

"Ear-EEG is a good candidate for inclusion in a hearable device, however, due to the high complexity of ear-EEG sensors, this has not yet been done."

- given that I was holding a pair of "hearables" (or, you know, "EEG headphones"), I figured I'd update the article to mention the fact that they definitely have been done, and are now commercially available.

However I'm not really sure how to actually make that edit and I don't want to do something bad, so I'm making this proposal on the talk page as recommended by the "Edit requests" instructions.

Here's a photo of the headphones I just took, if that helps! I thought it was super cool how they had integrated the EEG sensor into the ear cup, and thought it would be a fitting addition to the Ear-EEG page.

A general problem when recordings EEG is the interference arising from noise and artifacts. In a laboratory environment, artifacts and interference can largely be avoided or controlled, in real-life this is challenging. A problem inherent to recording EEG is the interference arising from noise and artifacts. While in a laboratory environment, artifacts and interference can, to a large extent, be avoided or controlled, in real-life scenarios this is a challenge. [1]
A study of physiological artifacts in ear-EEG found artifacts from jaw muscle contractions to be higher for ear-EEG compared to the scalp EEG, whereas eye-blinking did not influence the ear-EEG. The SNR deterioration for jaw artifacts were in general higher in the ear compared to the scalp. Whereas eye-blinking did not influence the SNR in the ear, it was significant for all groups of scalps electrodes in the delta and theta bands. [1]
Physiological artifacts are a category of artifacts with physiological origin, in contrast to artifacts arising from electrical interference. Physiological artifacts are a category of artifacts with physiological origin, in contrast to artifacts related to electrical interference. [1]

Section listing ear-EEG implementations / devices available to the public[edit]

Given that there is at least one ear-EEG related device on the market now (the Kokoon as mentioned above), would it make sense to create a section discussing such devices, possibly a table with implementation details? I think the cEEGrid could also be mentioned there? It would make sense to do a general overhaul of the discussion of future / present devices at the same time, since that part of the article is a bit outdated.

Does anyone know of more examples than kokoon and ceegrid? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Mikkelsen.kaare (talkcontribs) 18:54, 1 April 2019 (UTC)
