Psychology Students and Professors demonstrated the EEG Cap at UMD Tuesday.
The EEG Cap is used to study thought, feeling, and behavior by measuring brain waves, and processing them with a computer. Students use the data collected for their class projects and research.
"For some of our students who are interested in getting a PHD or other advanced degree and actually work in labs, doing cutting edge neuro science or psychological research, this is very much like the sort of thing they would be doing," said Dr. Scott Carlson, the Head of Psychology Department.
Dr. Carlson hopes that graduate students can use the EEG Cap to research and answer questions that are at the forefront of psychological research.
