Best mobile EEG idea contest: and the winner is.....

ANT is pleased to announce the winner of the Best Mobile EEG Idea Contest. The idea was elected from a total of 15 submitted proposals which we had received over a period of 2,5 months, and has received 34 out of 39 evaluation points, highest above all.  

All ideas were evaluated by a team of application specialists based on appropriateness of the topic with regards to mobility and innovation, research question, technical feasibility, soundness of methods, research setup, presentation of the idea, readability and references.

The winning idea was submitted by a group of researchers from the University of Salzburg. Their main purpose of research is to study the effects of physical stress on cortical activity during biathlon. They are planning to start their experiments next year in March with help of various data acquisition techniques including EEG.

The group will receive an eegosports 88 PRO system for a period of three months including assistance from ANT support team.

Members of the winning group:

  Ass. Prof. MMag. Dr. Thomas Finkenzeller, Department of Sport Science & Kinesiology,
University of Salzburg, Austria 
  Ass. Prof. Mag. Dr. Kerstin Hoedlmoser Centre for Cognitive Neuroscience,
University of Salzburg, Austria 
  Mag. Dr. Gerold Sattlecker Department of Sport Science & Kinesiology,
University of Salzburg, Austria 
  MMSc Germano Gallicchio (PhD candidate), Centre for Cognitive Neuroscience,
University of Salzburg, Austria


Although the start of this research is planned for next year, the group will do a pilot study in the following weeks. The first preliminary results will be presented during our yearly Neuromeeting – don’t miss it!

We would like to thank all enthusiastic researchers for sending us their exciting ideas. We have enjoyed going through the proposals and imagining them being applied in real-life. There were many of them very suitable for winning the award and we are convinced to see them back among future publications – seeing how they are getting closer to demystifying human brain functions and their relation to physical activity.
