You can get a new 64 channel BioSemi Active Two EEG system for the
price of a 32 channel Neuroscan system. Technologically it is two
steps beyond anything else.


Definitely do not try the  Neuroscan 40 channel portable. You might
find some of those for sale. There are good reasons why people would
want to sell them.

For analysis I recommend BrainVision Analyzer. It does more things
better than any other package available. Also, their tech support is
the best I've found. They're glad to answer questions on theory, not
just on their product, In fact they answered correctly a question
about Neuroscan's analysis algorithm that Neuroscan answered


The US distributor for both of these is Cortech Solutions (contact
info listed on both sites). He'd probably also be the one to serve

An alternative for acquisition and analysis software is WinEEG from
Russia. It's almost as capable as Analyzer, and if you have your own
amps, or find some old Grass amps or something, this would probably be
the cheapest way to start. It's difficult to use though. The manual is
not good at all, and the tech support is poor.

Unless you have the money to pay someone to be a full time Matlab
programmer, I wouldn't waste my time with that. I went that route and
had far more down time than with even the worst commercial equipment
and software.
