How can I make skin mounted electrodes to use in electrooculograpy?

Electrooculography is a technique where skin mounted electrodes are placed near the eyes to track eye movement. You can look here - - for a general idea. Is it possible to make electrodes for this purpose at home?

a bandaid, a thumb tack, and a wire would do it...just need the conductive jelly used on the real ones.
And be careful which way round you mount the tacks...
+3 for the suggestion, and 1 more for each of the eyes.
Better to be tackless than tackful here I feel.
see, now that was just tacky.

Now your getting to the point.

these have been bad, but you can't pin that last one on me.

This is starting to pinwheel out of control.

don't worry, I have a plan of at-tack.

That went out the pindow

stick it to the man?

Pin head!

Please get to the point.

Use a tack-switch

I think that's the most bad puns I've had pointed at my inbox for quite some time...

Point well taken.

And you only need a set of millivolt amplifiers to aim your device.

I have a TENS machine that used 2 types of pad.

1. is a conductive rubber - black so lots of carbon.
2. the other is a copper mesh - This has a stick backing like a plaster.

I would look at soldering a wire to the PIN of a brass drawing pin stuck through a sticking plaster st that you can stick the domed head of the drawing pin onto the face. (NOT the pointy bit!!)

To improve the conductivity you can use a water based conductive jell - I understand this is exactly the same as KY jelly only more expensive.
