Objective: Ear-EEG is a recording method in which EEG signals are acquired from electrodes placed on an earpiece inserted into the ear. [...] Key Result Conclusion: The study demonstrated that dry-contact electrode ear-EEG is a feasible technology for EEG recording. Significance: The prototyped dry-contact ear-EEG platform represents an important technological advancement of the method in terms of user-friendliness, because it eliminates the need for gel in the electrode-skin interface.Expand

Generic Dry-Contact Ear-EEG
TLDR
A new generic earpiece design with larger internal ear electrode distances is introduced, resulting in an increased spatial coverage compared to previousGeneric dry-contact ear-EEG designs, which attained statistically significant ASSRs with ear-Fpz, within-ear and cross-ear electrode configurations.
Development and Characterization of Ear-EEG for Real-Life Brain-Monitoring
TLDR
The Ph.D. project showed that ear-EEG measurements can be performed in real-life, with dry-contact electrodes, and the brain processes studied, were established with comparable clarity on recordings from temporal lobe scalp and ear electrodes.
Ear-EEG Forward Models: Improved Head-Models for Ear-EEG
TLDR
An extension to existing computational models is presented, by incorporating an improved description of the external ear anatomy based on 3D scanned impressions of the ears, to compute an ear-EEG forward model, which enables mapping of sources in the brain to potentials in the ear.
Highly Porous Platinum Electrodes for Dry Ear-EEG Measurements
TLDR
P porous platinum electrodes could be used to measure the Berger effect in a dry state using just one ear of a test person and their signal-to-noise ratio and the frequency transfer function is comparable to gel-based silver/silver chloride electrodes.
Auditory Steady-State Responses Across Chirp Repetition Rates For Ear-EEG And Scalp EEG
TLDR
In this study, ASSRs were recorded using both scalp and ear-EEG in response to broadband chirp stimuli with repetition rates from 20 to 95 Hz and the results showed that use of relatively high repetition rates may be beneficial in earEEG applications.

Ear‐EEG‐based sleep scoring in epilepsy: A comparison with scalp‐EEG
TLDR
This study is the first to examine the use of ear‐EEG recordings for sleep staging in patients with epilepsy, comparing it with standard recordings from scalp‐EEGs, and it was discovered that sleep stage transition frequency could be contributing to the kappa variation.

EEG Recorded from the Ear: Characterizing the Ear-EEG Method
TLDR
Ear-EEG yields similar performance as conventional EEG for spectrogram-based analysis, similar timing of ERP components, and equal signal strength for sources close to the ear, and the auditory mismatch response was difficult to monitor with the ear- EEG.

TLDR
High-density ear-EEG can be used to investigate how different cortical sources maps to the ear, and provides a way to select optimal electrode positions for given brain phenomena.
Ear-EEG-Based Objective Hearing Threshold Estimation Evaluated on Normal Hearing Subjects
TLDR
It is demonstrated that hearing threshold levels can be estimated from ear-EEG recordings made from electrodes placed in one ear, thereby allowing hearing assessment to be performed by the hearing instrument on a regular basis.
Physiological artifacts in scalp EEG and ear-EEG
TLDR
Ear-EEG was more prone to jaw related artifacts and less prone to eye-blinking artifacts compared to state-of-the-art scalp based systems, and spontaneous activity, in terms of alpha band oscillations, could be recorded from the ear- EEG platform.
