  EEG and Electrodes

My EEG (used) arrived last week, and the electrodes (new) arrived today. This prompted me to at least find a new battery and test to see if I could get the EEG connected to my laptop.

It was surprisingly easy. I just plugged in the USB part, and Windows automatically found the driver. Same with the software hasp. Plug and play. I also figured out how to get the software to read the signal from the hardware (I had to select which "COM" port the USB was plugged in).

But I still haven't the slightest clue how to make it all work. I'm not sure where to stick the electrodes on my head, and I'm just as unsure about how to use the software. If I get some motivation, I might just try to wing it one evening. September is going to be a busy month, so I don't know if I want to try learning to neurofeedback myself along with everything else.
