What is required to capture your brain waves on your computer (also heart and muscle activity)


EEG (electroencephalogram) and also ECG (electrocardiogram) and EMG (electromyogram)

Required from OpenBCI:
1. Ganglion board $199.99
2. Gold Cup electrodes $29.99
3. Ten20 Paste $19.99
From the forum section:
"By the time the Ganglion is shipping, there will be a tutorial on the OpenBCI 'docs' site, detailing all the steps needed to get started hooking up the Ganglion and running the GUI software. Many of the steps are similar to what is already documented for the 8 or 16 channel kits. See http://docs.openbci.com/tutorials/01-GettingStarted"
