To do the brain performance assessments in the HISEAS Habitat we will be using PEER - the Portable EEG ERP Researcher app made by Suva Technologies Inc. PEER essentially allows you to do EEG/ERP research with an iPhone/iPad and a MUSE headband. The software allows us to play the various games that we use to evoke the neural responses that we subsequently examine to determine brain health and performance (e.g., Cognitive Fatigue).
It is to realize PEER is a research tool! PEER allows neuroscientists to "easily" measure brain function but there is still a lot of analysis involved. SUVA is working on Aspire which will be the personal version of Aspire for home use. A way that anyone can track their brain performance over time.
