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

Electrooculography is a technique where skin mounted electrodes are placed near the eyes to track eye movement. You can look here - http://community.curuxa.org/en/Electrooculograph - 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...


...one for the suggestion, and 1 more for each of the eyes.

Better to be tackless than tackful here I feel.

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?

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.
