NEW! GTEN 100 Research Neuromodulation System
Precise, non-invasive neuromodulation with simultaneous EEG
Built on the Geodesic EEG Platform, the GTEN 100 Research System takes advantage of
• dense array EEG technology
• advanced source imaging software
• realistic high-resolution electric head modeling
• sophisticated planning and targeting software
to create the most technically advanced noninvasive neuromodulation system available on the market.
NEW! EGI's new study using GTEN 100 Research System and pulsed protocols showed long-term depression of motor cortex excitability, sustained over 90 minutes following current injection. Read the paper.
The GTEN 100 Research System is for research use only. This product is intended by the manufacturer for use by research scientists under the supervision of an Institutional Review Board or Ethics Committee.
Flexible and reliable neuromodulation with simultaneous EEG
Any combination of electrodes can be used for EEG recording or as sources or sinks for
- transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS)
- transcranial alternating current stimulation (tACS)
- pulsed direct current stimulation (tPCS)
Record EEG concurrently with neuromodulation to evaluate neuromodulatory effects on brain activity.
Electrodes for stimulation can be automatically selected for a defined target region or manually selected to create and evaluate any pattern of sources and sinks, from a simple two-patch pattern to your own design of complex patterns.
Proprietary software and hardware for precise cortical targeting
GTEN 100 targeting and planning software is designed to maximize current delivery dosage to your target while limiting current elsewhere.
- Planning based on the reciprocity
principle quickly calculates ideal
electrode configuration to modulate the cortical target
- 3D images show predicted negative
and positive cortical radial current
density distributions so you can
evaluate and modify the plan
- EGI’s AccuCharge Circuit continually
balances source channels with sink
channels to maintain the desired current levels over time
- Protocols can be created with varying durations, waveforms, frequencies, and pulse durations
- Includes ability to design sham protocols
Realistic head models for better accuracy
EGI’s high resolution FDM head models are accurate for describing the underlying geometry of the conductive tissues, and also for how current flows through the head volume to the scalp.
- Uses 7 different tissue types — scalp, skull, cerebrospinal fluid, grey matter, white matter, air, and eyeballs
- Uses 3D sensor positions to define the path of electrical current form the cortex to the scalp
- The FDM calculates electric potentials voxelbyvoxel from 1 mm MRI images
Integration with GeoSource 3 Research electrical source imaging software to define target selection
- Choice of individual head models, atlas head models or conformal/warped atlas head models from MRI data
- Use source estimation to identify functionally significant positive and negative cortical regions that be used as targets for neuromodulation
Designed with important safety features
Multiple software and hardware controls limit current levels to less than 200 μAmps per electrode or 1 mAmp total.
GTEN 100 Research neuromodulation system is available as a conversion package to EGI’s Geodesic EEG System (GES) 400.
