Project Description: 


Does digital and analog music affect EEG in the same way? We will find out by comparing EEG activity (specifically frontal alpha and beta asymmetry) for the two conditions. Each time, the subject will hear a song played through headphones connected to the music source via an aux cable. The music source (CD player vs vinyl record player) will be behind them so that they will not know what the source is. The same song will be played twice, counterbalanced for order among the different subjects. 

You need to schedule a time to use this room - so that you can record EEG from one other labmate. You will also analyze that person's data before the end of the semester. To book this room, speak to one of the students working at the front desk in GC 308
