FIGS 3A through 3E are views for showing the structure of a headband which is used in the embodiment of the present invention FIG 3A is a sectional view of the headband which is viewed from the top in a state in which a subject is wearing the headband When a subject wears the headband, five electrodes 30, which are attached to the headband, are tightly attached to the forehead (corresponding to the frontal lobe) of the subject A locking device 32 for fixing the headband to the subject's head is positioned on the back of the subject's head The headband is connected to the amplifier 23 through a shielded line 34 FIG 3B is a front view of the headband of FIG 3A The portion shown in FIG 3B does not come into contact with the subject's head while the subject is wearing the headband The front portion of the headband is wrapped with a soft polyvinyl chloride (PVC) member 36
FIG 3C is a rear view of the headband of FIG 3A The portion shown in FIG 3C comes into contact with the subject's head while the subject is wearing the headband The rear portion of the headband includes a first cushion 38 on the soft PVC member 36 Five electrodes 30 are attached to the first cushion 38 The first cushion 38 fixed between the soft PVC member 36 and the electrodes 30 allows the electrodes 30 to be appropriately and tightly attached to the scalp of a subject regardless of the size and shape of the head of each subject
FIG 3D is a sectional view taken along the line A-A' of FIG 3B An electrode coupler 48 is attached such that its side is supported by the first cushion 38 which is thin and elastic A flexible printed circuit board (PCB) 40 is disposed between the electrode coupler 48 and the soft PVC member 38 Coupling between the electrode coupler 48 and the flexible PCB 40 can be implemented in various manners For example, the coupling can be sustained by a mechanical force using screws A second cushion 42 is provided between the flexible PCB 40 and the soft PVC member 36 to allow the subject to feel comfortable wnen the subject wears the headband and to allow the headband to be tightly attached to the scalp of the subject When the electrodes are used for a long time, the electrodes may be coated with extraneous matters, may corrode or may be damaged (for example, the plating may wear off) In such cases, contact resistance between the electrodes and a human body becomes larger resulting in inaccurate measurement To solve this problem the electrodes 30 of the headband according to the embodiment of the present invention are formed to be removable so that they can be replaced with new electrodes when necessary More specifically, each electrode 30 has a projecting portion for allowing the electrode 30 to be physically detached from or attached to the electrode coupler 48 The electrode coupler 48 has a reentrant for mating with the projecting portion of the electrode 30
FIG 3E shows the flexible PCB 40 of FIG 3D Among the five electrodes 30, the center electrode is a ground electrode, the two left electrodes are used for measuring the brain wave of the frontal lobe of the left brain, and the two right electrodes are used for measuring the brain wave of the frontal lobe of the right brain Preferably, the electrode 30 is long in the vertical direction and short in the horizontal direction when the subject wears the headband on the head, for example, the electrode 30 has an elliptical shape Since the sizes and shapes of the heads of subjects are different, when the five electrodes are widely spread out, poor contact frequently occurs between the electrodes and the scalp Accordingly, it is preferable that the size of each electrode is not too large in the horizontal direction in order to narrow the overall width of the five electrodes in the horizontal direction It is also preferable that each electrode is long in the vertical direction to ensure sufficient contact area Preferably, the electrodes are made of metal (for example, metal plated with gold) which has good conductivity and does not corrode
Five wires which are connected to the electrodes are connected to the amplifier 23 A shielding wire 34 is used for preventing noise The electrodes 30 are connected to the shielding wire 34 through the flexible PCB 40 The flexible PCB 40 includes an electrode pad 44 contacting the electrode 30, a shielding wire pad 46 connected to the shielding wire 34, and a wire for connecting these pads The contact between the electrode 30 and the electrode pad 44 is mechanically accomplished, and the contact between the shielding wire 34 and the shielding wire pad 46 is accomplished by soldering The flexible PCB 40, which is installed within the headband which varies according to the shapes of the heads of subjects prevents poor contact from occurring even if the headband is used for a long period of time The flexible PCB 40 used in the embodiment of the present invention is a double-sided PCB whose back is an overall ground plane which is connected to the ground electrode and to the ground wire of the shielding wire Lines of the shielding wire 34 are connected to a shielding case of the amplifier 23 or the overall ground plane By this structure, connection between the electrodes 30 of the headband and the amplifier 23 is shielded, thereby preventing mixture of noise
The amplifier 23 amplifies the potential difference between the left two electrodes to calculate a brain wave signal of one channel and amplifies the potential difference between the right two electrodes to calculate a brain wave signal of the other channel
FIG 4 is a diagram for explaining a coding procedure according to the present invention After a character "A" one byte of data of a channel 1 is located After a character "B" one byte of data of a channel 2 is located After a character "C", one byte of data of a channel 3 is located After a character "D", one byte of data of a channel 4 is located The characters are respective identifiers of the four channels The identifiers of the channels are used for minimizing transmission error A receiving terminal discards data in which an identifier of each channel is not identified The brain wave signal which is coded in such a format is transmitted 120 times per second so that multiple brain wave channels can be transmitted to one serial port of the computer in real time
The description of a method for measuring a brain wave at the scalp of a subject and transmitting the measured brain wave to a single serial port which is provided in a computer for analyzing the brain wave, will be set forth below Brain wave signals of multiple channels are sensed at predetermined portions of the subject's scalp using a plurality of electrodes When intending to conveniently measure the brain wave without using paste, the headband shown in FIGS 3A through 3E is used In the embodiment of the present invention, a brain wave of two channels can be measured, but a headband for measuring a brain wave of one channel or a brain wave of at least three channels can be easily implemented based on the ideas of the present invention When each of two subjects wears a headband of two channels a four-channel mode in which the brains waves of two subjects are simultaneously measured is accomplished When the brain wave of one subject is measured, two channels are assigned to the electrodes of a headband and the remaining two channels are assigned to other electrodes (for example, cup electrodes) for measuring a brain wave at portions of the scalp in which the brain wave is difficult to measure using the headband The four channels may all be assigned to electrodes other than the electrodes of the headband The amplitudes of the brain wave signals of multiple channels, which are measured in this manner, are amplified and the amplified brain wave signals of multiple channels are digitized by channel The digital value of each channel is coded in real time together with the identifier of each channel The coded brain wave signals are transmitted to a computer for analyzing brain waves through a single serial port which is provided in the computer, and analyzed by the computer
