Point by point: The Melon headband has three electrodes. Our primary electrode is on the forehead region known as FP1, where Melon can monitor brainwave activity from the prefrontal cortex. The problem with this is that electricity doesn't work like that. Current always flows between two points, and our electrodes measure the potential between two ...

This type of sensor is hardly revolutionary, it seems that the integration and miniaturization are the key differences between say Melon, or this, or a 7-point sensor such as Muse, which supposedly monitors alpha and beta waves, and is already in production. Note that the 10/20 System is as old as I am: 30+ years. Additionally, it is an analog, dumb device, ...

Yes, and no. Biofeedback has been an active field of research since the 70s, but has been a bit "fringified" as a cure for ADHD, etc. It is possible to fine tune the brain activity for specific tasks. To borrow an example from BCI, the Rolandic Mu Rhythm can be used to "train" a user to refine the movement of a cursor or other pointing device. Jonathan ...

The steady state response is a sustained oscillatory response to a stimulus that is varying in strength with some regularity. But it is not a true oscillation, it's closer to an ERP in nature: it is a stimulus-driven response to variations in the stimulation. In auditory processing, which I am familiar with, people take a tone and then add an amplitude ...
