- New & available now: EDALYT – Isotonic Electrolyte Gel for GSR/EDA
Since Summer 2021 the well-known special electrolyte for galvanic skin response (GSR) or electrodermal activity (EDA) recordings, TD-246, is no longer available. Easycap GmbH therefore put its effort into developing and evaluating an alternative of equal quality. This gel, called EDALYT, is now available.

Release of Carbon Wire Loops for the BrainCap MR
- State of the art MR artifact handling with Carbon Wire Loops – a true market innovation!
We are excited to let you know that Carbon Wire Loops (CWL) for the BrainCap MR are now available to order. [→ more details]
- User Experience: Carbon Wire Loops in EEG-fMRI studies of interictal epileptic activity
At the Montreal Neurological Institute and Hospital, we work with combined EEG and fMRI acquisition to study epileptic patients to determine the brain region responsible for the generation of seizures that characterize this condition. We use Carbon Wire Loops to help recover a clean signal from the EEG recorded in the MR environment. [→ more details]
- User Experience: First Steps to Using Carbon Wire Loops to Correct for Artifacts in simultaneous EEG-fMRI
EEG signals acquired in parallel to fMRI data require the handling of artifacts in the EEG dataset due to electrode motion, for example, by blood pulsation. Using carbon wire loops placed on EEG caps allows you to directly measure these artifacts and subsequently correct for them efficiently using a regression-based approach. [→ more details]
