We have recently purchased a new hardware for our research and educational activities. The Emotiv EPOC Flex device is a 32-channel, wireless EEG recorder. The equipment that enriches the EEG Laboratory's offer is currently used in a study on the impact of energy drinks on the time and concentration ability of the people consuming them. The B.Sc. thesis entitled "Analysis and comparison of changes in the EEG signal and heart rate variability signals recorded in response to the consumption of selected energy drinks" is carried out under the supervision of Dr. Paweł Poryzała and Dr. Aleksandra Królak.
We are pleased to announce that our colleague, Prof. Michał Strzelecki, in recognition of his achievements in the field of medical imaging and in the development of biomedical image processing and analysis methods, has been elected a member of the Committee of Biocybernetics and Biomedical Engineering of the Polish Academy of Sciences.
We are pleased to announce that in recognition of many years of work and merits for the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) prof. dr hab. Eng. Andrzej Materka was given the distinguished Life Senior Member status of the world's largest association of electronics and electricians.
Congratulations and we wish you further scientific successes and contribution to the development of IEEE.
