Versatile applications across disciplines

Explore Pro is designed to adapt. Our hardware is used across a range of research fields.

Cognitive neuroscience

Use EEG, EOG, ECG, and EMG to study cognitive function and its neural underpinnings. Our wearable EEG amplifier gives easy access to bio-signal data.

Brain computer interfaces

Translate EEG signals into actionable commands in real-time. Leverage our open-source software and raw-data stream to create advanced data pipelines.

Child thinking


Investigate brain development with an amplifier that doesn’t disturb children. Choose a children’s cap and soft electrodes for an optimal set-up.

Baby sleeping

Sleep research

Let users sleep whilst recording their brain activity. Record EEG and ECG simultaneously using an amplifier that won’t wake up participants.

Engineering art

Apply bio-signals to artistic and engineering projects where signal quality is important and usability critical. Explore Pro helps you collect bio-signals in minutes.

Customize your electrodes

One of Mentalab’s key design principles is adaptability. With any purchase of an Explore Pro system, you can customize your cable tree.

Standard configuration

Each cable set consists of 8, 16, or 32 electrodes and one unipolar reference electrode. You decide what type of electrode each channel uses.

UL-098-channel system
UL-1716-channel system
UL-3332-channel system

Additional customization

For easy multi-modal setups, attach a mini touch-proof connector to multiple channels and connect individual leads of any length and type.

Electrode types

All of our electrodes are coated in soft Ag/AgCl, combining excellent comfort with optimal data acquisition. Choose from wet and dry, flat and brush electrodes.

Wet electrode cables

Wet electrode cables have integrated, sintered, Ag/AgCl electrodes that cannot be removed.

HRMMultitrode electrode cable

Dry electrode cables

Dry electrode cables terminate in connectors. You can then attach and remove dry electrodes to and from these connectors. Mentalab dry electrodes are Ag/AgCl-coated conductive polymer electrodes. They require no conductive gel, are soft to the touch, and reusable.
