======= = =======

To Do:

1. Read the real to do list on paper, for better visual psikomotoric satisfaction

2. Jadwal bulan Desember, Januari, Februari, dst?

3. Research Topic/Title:

3.1. Exposé (short Research Proposal)
– Third draft is on going —> elaborate more + milestones/time plan
– Third draft as presentation slide —> Debener’s group Monday meeting
– Third draft submitted
– Iteration is on going
– revise Ethic proposal

3.2. Mind Map.
– version 3
– sent to Supervisor I and Mr. A

3.3. Time Plan
– biweekly
– add Excel Table for participants
– add paper revision
– session: duration? interval? number of trials?
– participants: numbers? money? how to invite? email? newsletter?
– Ask Frank & Stefan & Christina Lavallee & Jade2Pro

3.4. Presentation at Master Kolloquium: about my topic
–> 08. Januar 2015

4. Belajar OpenVibe: simulasi
– info dari Catharina Zich
– lua programming language
– xml scenario

5. Belajar EEGLAB
– sudah sampai memilah-milah data berdasarkan “event”. Tapi masih ngawur mencari event yang diinginkan.

6. Belajar mBrainTrain & OpenVibe, tanya Axel Winneke dan grup Stefan Debener.
– Get mBrainTrain running on my laptop with OpenVibe
– step 1: use “Generic Oscillator” for data acquisition server, in OpenVibe
– step 2: use “Graz Motor Imagery BCI Stimulator”, in OpenVibe
– step 3: connect mBrainTrain to OpenVibe
– step 4: use mBrainTrain + OpenVibe to do motor imagery training experiment
– step 5: see the EEG data
– if successful, then do any EEG or BCI research with this tool.
– instalasi “sukses”, bisa akuisisi data tapi hanya pada satu USB port dan satu Bluetooth USB dongle
sudah kontak Ivan Gligorijević dan Andrija Djurisic dari mBrainTrain
Contact: ivan@mbraintrain.com, andrija.djurisic@mbraintrain.com

7. EMG:
– It is said that Nexus is in the lab.
– Do I need to connect EMG with the same time trigger? Not necessary.

8. Belajar Lab Streaming Layer (LSL)

9. Ethical:
– ethical consent form
– ethical approvement from Uni Oldenburg
– remember that this could be time consuming
– without ethical approvement, no publication –> no journal will accept
– documents have been read, conclusion: research proposal but more detail
(number of participants, length of study, duration, etc)
– first proposal submitted in November and brought back in December
– have to be submitted again in January
– check schedule and get forms:

10. Try g.tec
– driver may work for connecting devices
– should try to acquire data from C3 and C4
– maybe Guger Technology should be contacted

11. Bulan Desember masih minjam buku
– Event Related Potential, karangan Steve Luck, sudah kupinjam dari Perpus Uni Bremen
Jangan lupa balikin kalau waktu habis.

12. Jour Fixe, 16 Desember 2014, Aku presentasi tentang Brain-Computer Interface

13. Bikin janji sama dokter gigi!

14. Kuliah Oltech dan kumpulkan kredit 45 ECTS.

– Discuss with Oltech, the graduate school
– DONE (12 ECTS) & TO-GET (6 ECTS), from TOTAL (45 ECTS)

15. Daftar Verein der Freunde und Ehemaligen des Institutes für Hörtechnik und Audiologie.
Jangan lupa scan dokumennya dulu.

16. Cari dokumen pajak dan bikin jadwal urusan pajak.

Try to make the list below 10 tasks!

Tweet informatif:


Tweet kontemplatif:


Selasa lalu, aku mencoba akuisisi data dengan mBrainTrain Smarting di Kampus Wechloy, Uni Oldenburg. Aku mengambil data EEG dari kepalaku. Datanya bisa kulihat di MATLAB dengan EEGLAB. Ada “event marker” yang terlihat. Aku pun mencoba melihat seperti apa sinyalnya. Hingga larut malam, aku berada di kampus.

Selasa malam, di stasiun, aku menanti kereta yang ternyata terlambat datang. Angin kencang di Eropa Utara sepertinya mengganggu transportasi kereta. Semoga bukan aksi bunuh diri lagi yang menghambat kereta. Beberapa hari lalu, satu jalur kereta harus terganggu karena dua orang bunuh diri bersama-sama di rel.

Rabu, aku harus bangun dalam keadaan cuaca suram di Bremen. Ada hujan. Sesampainya di Oldenburg, hujan reda dan aku bisa naik sepeda. Aku pergi ke Jade HS Oldenburg untuk mencoba gtec Mobilab+. Aku mencari elektroda yang kubutuhkan dan gel. Ternyata elektroda pasif memiliki jumlah minim. Sepertinya aku harus memesan lagi. Aku pun bertanya-tanya mengapa elektroda aktif lebih banyak daripada elektroda pasif, sedangkan alat yang kupegang memiliki colokan untuk elektroda pasif.

Dari Rabu hingga Kamis, aku mencoba memikirkan posisi elektroda dan sinyal mu. Catatanku tentang posisi elektroda untuk motor imagery dan posisi elektroda untuk mencari mu rhytm kubuka-buka lagi. Aku juga mencoba mencari paper yang sesuai. Entah kenapa hari Rabu itu aku tidak bisa membuka ScienceDirect. Apakah ini karena cuaca?

Kamis ini, sebetulnya ada janji bertemu supervisor. Akan tetapi, supervisor sedang berbincang bersama Profesor lain. Ketika aku menunggu, aku terlalu larut dalam MATLAB. Aku mencoba menganalisis sinyal EEG, hingga nampaknya baik supervisor maupun diriku lupa kalau kami punya janji diskusi. Dengan EEGLAB, aku sudah mencoba filter (temporal) dan Independent Component Analysis (ICA) untuk membuang “noise”. Kemudian aku sudah berhasil “epoching” berdasarkan “event” yang kuinginkan. Akan tetapi, aku tidak bisa melihat sinyal yang kuinginkan. Tantangan ke depannya adalah aku harus memikirkan filter spatial.

Kamis malam, aku membuka email dan kuketahui bahwa aku harus merevisi proposal ethik. Berarti aku harus membuat proposal lagi. Minggu depan, aku juga harus presentasi. Bulan depan juga. Motivasiku dalam bekerja masih belum pulih. Rasa percaya diriku lagi rendah akibat segenap kegagalan setahun ini. Kemampuanku dalam membagi waktu sedang terganggu. Aku hanya mengikuti deadline demi deadline, tanpa mampu mengendalikan jadwalku dengan segenap rasionalitas. Aku masih kehilangan kendali atas diriku. Entah kapan, aku bisa berpikir cerah lagi. Nasihat kawanku, yang penting tetap istiqomah aja dalam riset.
