Background

This is an equipment purchase related to Dr. Sarah Forster s Career Development Award.Â

Purpose

The requested equipment amplifies, digitizes, and records electrical signals related to neural processes and eye movements/blinks that can be detected at the surface of the scalp and face. We will utilize these data for two primary purposes: (1) electrical signals related to specific brain processes will be examined as predictors of treatment response in a sample of Veterans with cocaine use disorder receiving two versions of an evidence-based intervention for cocaine users (Contingency Management) or standard outpatient care and (2) change in electrical signals related to specific brain processes from pre- to post-treatment will be examined to elucidate neuroadaptive mechanisms underlying treatment response. In order to target specific brain processes of interest in the current study, we will need to record EEG during participant engagement with cognitive-behavioral tasks developed within our lab using VA-approved paradigm design software (E-Prime). In addition, direct communication between E-Prime and the EEG system will be necessary to log task events in the EEG dataset in order to complete proposed analyses.

Requirements

The system should provide the following:

Active Electrodes (amplification of electrical signals at electrode sites)

Robust, Water-Tight Construction (active electrodes can withstand required sterilization procedures)

Ability to Replace Individual Electrodes

Direct Communication with E-Prime (Accurate Event Timing Information is Transmitted to EEG system)

Accurately and Reliably Logs Response Time Events

Includes at Least 32 EEG Channels + Bipolar Channels for EOG

Includes EEG Caps of Different Sizes

Quick and Efficient Pre-Acquisition Set-Up

Achieves Excellent Signal Quality Without Requiring Scalp Abrasion

Training will be conducted by contractor.
