The Bleeding Edge of Neurohacking

Presented at Notacon 8 (2011), April 16, 2011, 11 a.m. (30 minutes)

I would like to give a talk on neurohacking and how it can

be done very cheap through open source DIY tech. Devices like EEGs,

Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulators, rTMS, sound and light/dream

machines, and transcranial pulsed ultrasound. Specifically I would

like to demonstrate how it is possible to turn a $50 toy into a

medical grade EEG sensors using an arduino, and how a Cranial

Electrotherapy Stimulator can be made for under $20 in parts.
