Disappointed by journalism in this area, but perhaps not surprising because so few neuroscience classes are a part of mainstream education. Would anyone here start an exercise routine or even a new hobby and expect major improvements after one week?
This article babbles so much. I know you want to be dramatic but really I only care about the details of the article as they relate to the EEG devices NOT the details of your trip to the doctor's office or if he answers a call about taking insurance..?
Article is very information light and could stand some editing. I got the feeling that the author was going for a non-technical, "Is-any-of-this-real-or-are-they-just-taking-our-money?" subtext, but didn't push it far enough, so she ended up with mush.
If you're interested in developing software for the Muse or other commercial EEG systems, check out the NeuroTechX community. We've got several open-source projects that we'd love to have some more contributors on. A lot of us are working hard on making commercial EEG less 'garbage'.
