First night experiences

After trying to sleep with the setup tonight and continuously fixing the position of the electrodes (in particular the reference) due to the incredible heat in my flat, I finally gave up. Today I w...

Stuck in chaos

Hey Dreamers, after the last labnote, only a few things happened. I had tested the openBCI device with several versions of my dry electrodes and failed multiple times, the best results were deliver...

Slow but steady

Hey folks!It has been a while since the last labnote and many things happened during the last months – all of them can be summarized in one word: underestimation. If there is one thing that we have...

Needle in a haystack

Needle in a haystackHey guys!After weeks of struggling around, tons of testprints and enormous expenditure of time, we found out what most likely causes the problems in our prints. We talked to man...

Sleep stages and moving boxes

Last week I have visited a three-day crash course for the evaluation of polysomnographic data in Landau hold by Dr. Weeß and colleagues. I did so in the context of my dissertation topic and neurops...

Thank you very much, I am now following and will create an account after work, I redirected the link to my med-tech colleague who helps us with the setup

Thanks William for these motivating words ;) we want to place the 16 electrodes homogeneous around the scalp and have no general preference since it is still unclear where exactly critical correlates of lucidity arise... although there is a tendency to frontal areas (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/30880167) - first we will try the following locations: Fp1, Fp2, F7, F8, F3, F4, T3, T4, C3, C4, P3, P4, O1, O2, Fz, Cz, and then randomly changing locations in attempt to get the the best signals with our setup

Meanwhile I think that lucid dreaming takes just a small glimpse of this project... its rather about planning and coordinating tasks, getting lost in everything and - much more difficult - find the way back, realizing that certain ideas are not convertible and generating new and better ones... I think that this approach is a little bit like creating reusable rockets to fly into space - with the major difference that our team constists of two people instead of 200 :D

Thank you William, we actually do not need all the elctrodes for the polysomnography, just a few if we follow the guidelines of the AASM (for EEG it was just F4, C4, and O2). Considering lucid dreaming, lucid dream induction techniques and stimulation, also hypnagogic/hypnopompic states and RISP phenomena that could be used for LD induction, too, we do not know how many electrodes we need. We have some data from our previous prototype but I think we will simply have to try out different numbers of electrodes until we find out what is sufficient for a suitable neurofeedback lucid dream induction setup.

Hey William, you are totally right! The electrodes printed from this design serve just as a prototype for a) testing the approach of Krachunov and Casson and b) the installation of the cyton+daisy board and the additional stimulation hardware, something like a "bulky playground". The final design is not ready yet, but now we can split up the design/programming work much easier. Peter
