A German neurobiologists says Starbucks may not be charging you enough for that double tall, two-pump caramel white chocolate mocha. And, he notes, your brain waves may be used to determine how much you would pay.
Electrooculography, sometimes shortened to EOG, is the tracing of electricity used for operation of the retina in different phases, specifically the resting potential. The results are recorded on an electrooculogram. These are interpreted for opthalmological diagnosis and in recording eye movements. Eye movement measurements: Usually, pairs of electrodes are placed either above and below the eye or to the left and right of the eye. If the eye is moved from the center position towards one...
