Cortech Solutions specializes in innovative solutions for brain research.  We identify best-in-class solutions, work with the manufacturers to ensure compatibility and offer the total package with a single source for technical support. Leave the technical solutions to us…you focus on the science!

Brain-Computer Interface and Neurofeedback Systems

Our ActiveTwo EEG systems are well-suited to closed loop neurofeedback and brain-computer interface research applications.  The ActiveTwo software and firmware ecosystems offer multiple options for sharing live data at very short latency with your own algorithms running in MATLAB and other development environments.

EEG / ERP Systems for the Lab

We offer the leading research-grade EEG systems from multiple manufacturers.  The ActiveTwo system is known around the world as the leader in active electrode EEG recording systems, and the system is as comfortable in the lab as in a backpack for untethered recording with live data streaming.  ActiveTwo is well suited to EEG/ERP recording in the lab, but it is also designed for real-time feedback loop applications and for use in harsh environments.

EEG / ERP Systems for use with TMS

While other companies are still selling systems they developed in the last century using technology and components from a bygone era, the Biosemi ActiveTwo EEG system is a modern high-specification EEG / ERP system for use in the that has been TMS compatible since day one.  High-resolution EEG no longer needs to imply “more electrodes than I know what to do with”.  With Biosemi ActiveTwo, precise signal measurement during TMS is facilitated by an optional footswitch-controlled trigger output to initiate a TMS pulse.

Functional Near-Infrared Spectroscopy Systems (NIRS)

NIRS has grown in popularity because of its inherent compatibility with EEG and its ability to measure not just deoxyhemoglobin, like fMRI, but also total hemoglobin. Our OxyMon system is a flexible, research-grade system for continuous wave near-infrared spectroscopy in configurations from 1 to 96 channels.  OxyMon transmits via temperature stabilized pulsed laser light sources and measures via cooled avalanche photodiodes.  The system can sample at rates up to 250 Hz, and it comes with intuitive software for acquisition and analysis, which is lacking among other instruments in the field.
