- Delta,HiBeta inhibit
- Theta/Beta - Ratio inhibit

- Alpha-Amplitude Training
- Alpha-Asymmetry inhibit
- Alpha-Synchrony Training
- Alpha/Theta - Training

User-defined Training Designs: - with max. 16 Training Filters
- and 18 Training Functions, individually combined (Amplitude with Coherence e. g.)
- with Range Auto Scaling ( uV-Amplitude with %-Coherence e. g.)
- with Threshold Auto Scaling
- and Channel Selection



Feedback: *.WAV audio,
*.AVI, *MPEG, *.WMV video files and
MIDI Instruments



Using MIDI Instruments as Feedback, in eBioo it is possible to assign an individual MIDI sound to each of the 16 Training Filters
and additionally one MIDI sound to each of rows 1 and 2 and one to the total score.
This way it is possible to configure a MIDI feedback with up to 19 voices.

Number Remarks




(*0) Versions: STARTER, restricted version, 3 months of free use
BrainWave Tuner®     = 2 channels (configurable to run at 1 or 2 channels)
Brainwave Trainer      = 4 channels  (configurable to run at 1, 2 or 4 channels)
Brainwave Performer = 8 channels (projected)



eBioo STARTER : Restrictions compared to eBioo Tuner:

- No Client-Administration
- No Save/Load of Session Designs
- No numerical session result report
- No Save of Raw Data = no Playback
- No Assessment Functionality
- No DVD Feedback evaluated (only playback of movies)



eBioo STARTER without PassKey:

- first 3 months free use on 1 channel
- Simulation mode on 2 channels
- No Coherence training (requires 2 channels)



eBioo STARTER with PassKey (from Soft-dynamics):

+ first 6 weeks free use of 2 channels
+ PassKey for additional months for 9.50 EUR per month
+ Coherence training






eBioo Tuner : additional functionalities compared to eBioo STARTER:

+ Load/Save of Session Designs
+ Save of Raw Data + Playback
+ Export of numerical Session Reports
+ DVD Feedback evaluation






eBioo Trainer : Additional functionalities compared to eBioo Tuner:

+ Training on up to 4 channels
+ Assessment Mode
+ Bipolar evaluation mode with referential 4 channel montage





(*1) Sampling Rate (Software): 100 Hz, 125 Hz, 128 Hz,
200 Hz, 250 Hz, 256 Hz, 333 Hz,
500 Hz, 512 Hz and 1 kHz

also depending on the hardware

8 fold oversampling possible, useful for phase evaluations for frequencies above 20 Hz


(*2) Number of Channels: Basic version with 2 channels - (Versions with 4 or 8 channels projected/in internal test)


(*3) Resolution: 16 Bit (or 8 Bit for appropriate (older) hardware types)
(*4) Functions: The output functions can be displayed on spectrum screen as well as used for evaluations within the feedback filters (for feedback evaluation).

Channel Average (Amplitude) = ( Ampl(ch1) + Ampl(ch2) ) / 2


(*4.1) Band Amplitude: Since in eBioo the average amplitude is evaluated as Band Amplitude, the Band Amplitude in eBioo is independent from the band frequency range (in the area of almost constant amplitude densities) and thus the band amplitude densities of bands are directly comparable. Disadvantage: A comparison with band amplitude values of external EEG band amplitude values is not possible this way and requires a conversion.


(*5) Frequency Axis: linear scale and quasi logarithmic scale


(*7) Frequency Windows / Feedback Filter: 16 Filter = in 2 rows of 8 filter each, assignable to the channels

Example:

up to 8 filter on channel 1 and up to 8 filter on channel 2

or

up to 8 filter on channel 1 and 2 simultaneously and up to 8 filter on channel 2

The filter borders can be modified on the fly clicking the ( [<] [>] ) buttons. The filter borders can be depicted together with their frequency uncertainty on the spectrum screen. Frequency range modifications are visible immediately.


(*8) Language: English, German
Delimitation: Some of the system messages are displayed in English, even if other languages than English are selected. Some elements (e.g. option boxes) are displayed in English, even if other languages than English are selected.

(*9) CPU Charge: The applications overall CPU charge depends also on the requested performance for graphics processing e.g. for motion pictures. Additional CPU charge due to rapidly changing graphics or animations (movies) possible.
