BESA Research 7.0 Features & Highlights

Data review and pre-processing:

  • Simultaneous EEG-fMRI data review: Correction of fMRI artifacts is now possible directly in the BESA Research review window. One of three proven methods can be selected, and the effects on the correction matrix directly visualized.
    • Use this feature for further analysis: Read your fMRI data directly into BESA Research’s Source Analysis window, seed sources from fMRI and directly see activation patterns on a millisecond scale!
  • A new ICA method (SOBI) was introduced.
  • New readers for the following data formats are available:
    • EEG: Neuroscan Curry version 7
    • EEG: Neuralynx
    • MEG: RICOH

Source analysis:

  • Semi-Analytic Monte-Carlo Estimation (SESAME) of sources is a new automated localization method using Bayesian statistics that finds the most likely solution and displays the likelihood distribution as a volume image.
  • Time-domain beamforming was introduced using either multiple or single sources, which can be applied as vector or scalar beamformer; state-of-the-art options for calculating spatial filters and weights are available.
    • Use this feature to reconstruct source waveforms, and seed virtual sensors from the results with few clicks. Virtual sensor montages can be applied to raw data in further analyses.
  • Brain atlases are available. Several state-of-the-art atlases can be selected, and displayed in user-defined overlay modes. It is possible to combine brain atlas images with other source imaging results.

Brain connectivity / source coherence:

  • The new BESA Connectivity program can be started directly from the Coherence dialog, for enhanced methods in time-frequency decomposition and brain connectivity analysis (release expected in the next three weeks):
    • wavelets and / or complex demodulation
    • connectivity analysis in source space or sensor space
    • latest connectivity methods including Granger Causality, Partial Directed Coherence, Directed Transfer Function, and more
    • visualize data in clear 2D and 3D result plots and create publication images or videos
  • Single events or any data block can now be plotted in a time-frequency plot.

New Hyper-Sampling ActiveTwo New

We're proud to announce the latest and only Hyper-Sampling EEG System with active electrodes! Equipped with 8 EX (external) inputs on the top and newest SAR (Successive-Approximation-Register) ADC technology this active EEG System can sample with an incredibly fast sampling rate of up to 262,144 Hz!

Its main application is EEG/ABR on subjects with cochlear implants, as cochlear implants generate vast amounts of high frequency interference covering the EEG. When the high frequency interference is sampled accurately together with the EEG, the interference can be calculate out of the signal and the clean EEG will be recovered. Currently, the high frequency interference is smeared out to lower frequencies in the EEG bandwidth, and EEG cannot be recovered. No other EEG amplifier can measure such a signal with this accuracy (fast slew rate, minimal ringing)!
