Channel Electrodes On Flex Band Request For Information - 2016 Muse


#1

I have a question regarding the electrodes on the flex band of the 2016 Muse.

The flex band has five sensors.

When I read the documentation - http://developer.choosemuse.com/hardware-firmware/hardware-specifications - it makes it clear that this results in 2 channels and 1 reference channel.

How do the two extra electrodes get incorporated into the system?

I assume the two outer electrodes are AF7/AF8 and center electrode is Fpz.

Any clarification on what these do would be greatly appreciated.

This question was asked here - Why does the Muse band have 5 electrodes but only 2 channels/1 ref?! - but it didn’t seem to get an answer. I searched the forum for other posts but couldn’t find an answer.
