Brain Signals and the Corresponding Hand Movement Signals Dataset (BS-HMS-Dataset)
BS-HMS-Dataset is a dataset of the users' brainwave signals and the corresponding hand movement signals from a large number of volunteer participants. The dataset has two parts; (1) Neurosky based Dataset (collected over several months in 2016 from 32 volunteer participants), and (2) Emotiv based Dataset (collected from 27 volunteer participants over several months in 2019).
Neurosky based Dataset - Neurosky based dataset consists of EEG data recordings from neurosky headset and the corresponding hand movements recordings from SONY smartwatch's motions sensors. The users wore the smartwatch based on their personal preference of left or right hand.
Emotiv based Dataset - Emotiv based dataset consists of EEG data recordings from Emotiv Epoc+ headset and the corresponding hand movements from both the hands of the user. The hand movement data was recorded using two SONY smartwatches which users wore in their hands, one in each hand.
Both the datasets, Neurosky based Dataset and Emotiv based Dataset, were collected in two different sessions with an average gap of 6-7 days between the sessions. In each session the volunteer participants performed four different activities; (1) watching a happy video, (2) typing their response to the questions about the story in the watched happy video, (3) watching a sad video, and (4) typing their response to the questions about the story in the watched sad video. The users took a gap of ~5 minutes to rest between the different activities. The data was recorded separately for each activity.
There are two folders under each user; session I and sessions II. Each session folder contains four different folders; one for each activity performed by the user. Each activity folder contains .csv files; (1) EEG Data (brainwave.csv), (2) Handmovement Accelerometer Data (accelerometer.csv), and (3) Handmovement Gyroscope Data (gyroscope.csv).
A more deatailed description of the data is given in BS-HMS-Dataset-Documentation.pdf file.
