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..?
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'.
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.
