Our partners from iMotions and G-tec help us run an on-site two day workshop @FAMNIT UP. The workshop covered an overview of sensors (e.g. GSR, EMG, ECG, EEG) for capturing physiological response signals. This was followed by EEG data capture using a 64 channel EEG device. We also looked at data capture using Tobii-pro 2 glasses and advanced API features of iMotions software. Big thanks to instructors Kiara, Bart, Mike and Francisco.
