EEG electrode placement for mu wave.

From Gerwin Schalk, in BCI2000 forum (if 8 channels):
- left:   F3, C3, T7
- right:  F4, C4, T8
- middle: Cz, Pz

Easy Cap, in lab.
- left:   F3, C3, P3, O1, TP9
- right:  F4, C4, P4, O2, TP10
- middle: FPz, AFz, Fz, FCz, Cz, Pz
The configuration of 16 electrodes is from Markus Kroesen's Bachelor Thesis, 2013,
"Vergleich verschiedener EEG-Verstärker zur Steuerung von Brain-Computer Interfaces"
note: Markus Kroesen was developing P300 based BCI speller, with EasyMotiv (Easy Cap + modified Emotiv)

- F3, F4, C3, C4 are there, like Gerwin Schalk's suggestion
- Cz and Pz are there, like Gerwin Schalk's suggestion
- T7 and T8 are not there

Easymotiv = Easy Cap and modified Emotiv


Well, it is time consider mBrainTrain, instead of Easymotiv

Diana Valbuena 2010 motor imagery cap:
left:  FC3, C5, C3, C1, CP3
right: Fc4, C6, C4, C2, CP4
middle: AFz, Cz
reference: right ear lobe / or left?
ground (GND): AFz
Laplacian spatial filter, with C3 and C4 are central, others are surrounding

Similarity between Diana and Easy Cap:
- left:  C3
- right: C4
- middle: AFz, Cz

- inconsistent reference placement but Laplacian spatial filter solve it.
- good idea of signal processing of ERD/ERS classification
- read other papers from citation to get idea of motor imagery, signal processing and electrode placement

- Diana Valbuena got idea of Laplacian spatial filter from this paper
- this paper is from the pre-internet era

It seems that the important electrode positions to get mu-wave are C3, Cz, C4.
Pz can also be needed to get P300 signals.

Electrodes from frontal lobe: F3, F4, FC3, and FC4.
Electrode from temporal lobe: T7, T8
They could be needed to get redundant information.

mBrainTrain Smarting Easy cap: RBE-24
- left:  FP1, F7, FC1, C3, T7, CP1, CP5, TP9,  P3, O1
- right: FP2, F8, FC2, C4, T8, CP2, CP6, TP10, P4, O2
- middle: AFz (DRL/GND), Fz, FCz (CMS/REF), Cz, CPz, Pz
reference: FCz  (CMS)
ground: AFz  (DRL)
Sorted channels (1-24): FP1;FP2;Fz;F7;F8;FC1;FC2;Cz;C3;C4;T7;T8;CPz;CP1;CP2;CP5;CP6;TP9;TP10;Pz;P3;P4;O1;O2
RBE = Real-Behavior-EEG

- FC3, FC4, CP3, and CP4 are not there
- Laplacian structure (like Valbuena's) for C3 and C4 cannot be used. So, do think about Common Spatial Pattern (CSP) to automate spatial filter.
- Bipolar structure to think about: C3-FC1 and C4-FC2.


About Common Spatial Pattern (CSP):

CMS and DRL for EEG electrodes:
- CMS = Common Mode Sense, active electrode, used as reference (REF)
- DRL = Driven Right Leg, passive electrode, used as ground (GND)
