Fête de la science

15-16th October,
In the Science museum in Bordeaux, I presented with my colleagues TuxRacer, an open source 3D game which we modified to be manipulated with Motor Imagery BCI, or by imagining left or right hand movement. As imagined movements can’t be seen, for the sake of clarity, in front of me was Teegi, a robot which presents the active areas of ones brain, and moves those hands which movement is imagined. In our case, as my brain activity was being measured by an EEG cap (BrainProduction LiveAmp 32 channels), Teegi’s corresponding brain zones would illuminate contralateraly (right zone of the sensory-motor cortex indicating left hand movement and vice versa) — very useful for revealing the underlying brain functions to the public.
