EEG Training Module

An introductory training video for the LMB lab

Hello fellow EEG enthusiasts! Welcome to the hidden channel! Here is an introductory training video for the LMB lab in regard to testing. Please keep in mind that this video is outdated and thus has some irrelevant information that has been noted below. We also lost the ability to skip sections through the video (as the technology has been obsolete), so if you feel you want to go over an area or skip the outdated sections, time stamps for each section have also been provided below. Should you need more information, please check out the lab manual on the server or reach out to any of the wonderful lab members!

It might take a while for the video to load. Please be patient.
