Recent advances in scalp electroencephalography (EEG) as a neuroimaging tool have now allowed researchers to overcome technical challenges and movement restrictions typical in traditional neuroimaging studies.  Fortunately, recent mobile EEG devices have enabled studies involving cognition and motor control in natural environments that require mobility, such as during art perception and production in a museum setting, and during locomotion tasks.


Ten volunteers were trained through a series of twelve daily lessons to type in a computer using the Colemak keyboard layout. During the fourth-, eight-, and eleventh-session, electroencephalography (EEG) measurements were acquired for the five trials each subject performed in the corresponding lesson. Electrocardiography (ECG) data at each of those trials were acquired as well. The purpose of this experiment is to aim in the development of different methods to assess the process of learning a new task.


Dataset description

This dataset contains EEG signals from 73 subjects (42 healthy; 31 disabled) using an ERP-based speller to control different brain-computer interface (BCI) applications. The demographics of the dataset can be found in info.txt. Additionally, you will find the results of the original study broken down by subject, the code to build the deep-learning models used in [1] (i.e., EEG-Inception, EEGNet, DeepConvNet, CNN-BLSTM) and a script to load the dataset.

Ear-EEG recording collects brain signals from electrodes placed in the ear canal. Compared with existing scalp-EEG,  ear-EEG is more wearable and user-comfortable compared with existing scalp-EEG.


Our state of arousal can significantly affect our ability to make optimal decisions, judgments, and actions in real-world dynamic environments. The Yerkes-Dodson law, which posits an inverse-U relationship between arousal and task performance, suggests that there is a state of arousal that is optimal for behavioral performance in a given task. Here we show that we can use on-line neurofeedback to shift an individual's arousal from the right side of the Yerkes-Dodson curve to the left toward a state of improved performance.


There are two types of data: raw EEG data recorded from the Brain-Vision system and Mat file converted by BBCI-Tool Box.


Previous neuroimaging research has been traditionally confined to strict laboratory environments due to the limits of technology. Only recently have more studies emerged exploring the use of mobile brain imaging outside the laboratory. This study uses electroencephalography (EEG) and signal processing techniques to provide new opportunities for studying mobile subjects moving outside of the laboratory and in real world settings. The purpose of this study was to document the current viability of using high density EEG for mobile brain imaging both indoors and outdoors.


Electroencephalography (EEG) signal data was collected from twelve healthy subjects with no known musculoskeletal or neurological deficits (mean age 25.5 ± 3.7, 11 male, 1 female, 1 left handed, 11 right handed) using an EGI Geodesics© Hydrocel EEG 64-Channel spongeless sensor net. All subjects gave their informed consent for inclusion before they participated in the study. The study was conducted in accordance with the Declaration of Helsinki, and the protocol was approved by the Ethics Committee of the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee (17.352).
