Walking through the Innocent Tunnel with a mobile EEG device
From Richard Coyne on October 14th, 2016
Walk along Innocent Railway Tunnel (now a cycle and walking route), Edinburgh
The group follow an individual who is wearing an EEG monitor. They walk in silence and take notes, images, sound recordings. On return they markup a map for display at the conference and discuss the technology, its application and the experience of both the walker and the group. The environment is one of extreme spatial contrast -- a long dark tunnel and pleasant open green space. The EEG record shows a shift in intensity of affect evident during the tunnel walk.
The researcher is Dorothea Kalogianni (with Richard Coyne). The participant wearing the Emotiv Epoc EEG device is Professor Billie Giles-Corti.
