Third Party Software Support

All of our products provide unrestricted access to the raw data output to enable you to use the system in any experiment of application. We offer a variety of offline and online tools to take EEG data from our hardware into a variety of advanced analysis packages.

Cognionics headset streaming data, via LabStreamingLayer, into EEGLAB/BCILAB running real-time artifact correction, developed by UCSD. 

Cognionics headset streaming data, via LabStreamingLayer, into OpenViBE running a real-time P300 speller. 


  • EEGLAB is an interactive Matlab toolbox for processing continuous and event-related EEG, MEG and other electrophysiological data incorporating independent component analysis (ICA),time/frequency analysis, artifact rejection, event-related statistics, and several useful modes of visualization of the averaged and single-trial data. EEGLAB runs under Linux, Unix, Windows, and Mac OS X
  • Easy data importation into EEGLAB from data files produced by our acquisition software
  • Same tools can be used to load files into the MATLAB workspace

LabStreamingLayer Real-time Output

  • Open standard for streaming and synchronizing multiple data sources including EEG, events and peripherals
  • LSL outlet is directly integrated into our acquisition software and can be enabled with a single click
  • Easily build advanced, networked experimental platforms with a simple and multi-platform API
  • Comprehensive algorithm library: 100+ algorithms including advanced artifact (noise) removal, high-resolution brain mapping, advanced analytics using machine learning, and much more
  • Add your own algorithms to NeuroPype using Python and shared work flow between collaborators
  • Pipelines deploy on NeuroScale for real-time access anywhere you can connect to the Internet
  • Easy-to-use, powerful graphical environment for real-time BCI research
  • Cognionics driver is built into the latest version of OpenVibe
  • Driver source code hosted by OpenVibe for further customization

Other Analysis Packages

  • Our acquisition program outputs EEG data and event markers directly in the Brain Vision Analyzer format
  • Existing users have successfully used our output files directly with other packages including EMSE and ASA
  • Option support upon request for output to Persyst

Developing Custom Applications

  • Direct hardware access is possible through a Bluetooth or virtual serial port interface, depending on specific model
  • Existing users have successfully integrated Cognionics hardware with custom applications on Windows, Mac OS X and Android
  • Detailed specifications and example code (C, C# and Java) provided for customers, upon request
