Assessing the Utility of a Commercial Mobile EEG in Detecting Age-Related Differences in the Brain

The world’s population is aging and thus, healthy cognitive aging a major healthcare priority and goal. Yet, a better understanding of how the brain changes with normal aging versus pathology is required. Recent advancements in wearable technologies may allow the assessment of brain function with greater ease, accessibility, and at a lower cost, as compared with traditional neuroimaging techniques. Specifically, there is now a commercially available mobile electroencephalogram (EEG) device that has the potential to provide information on brain functional connectivity. However, this needs to be tested and validated. Thus, the propose research will use functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) as a reference to determine whether the mobile EEG device can offer comparable resolution and sensitivity in assessing functional neural networks. The goal of Synaptitude Brain Health, the partner organization, is to promote overall brain wellness through non-pharmaceutical approaches. TO BE CONT”D
