Experiments in Sonification of EEG Signals

We wrote eegToTones.m in Matlab to convert EEG frequencies (in the range from 5 to 90 Hz) to audible frequencies to perform some biofeedback experiments. To test the code, we applied it to pre-recorded EEG signals recorded when subjects were performing various mental tasks.

Here are some examples of the results. Images are spectrograms, Fourier transforms of overlapping windows in time of the EEG signal. The span of time from left to right is 10 seconds.
