Understanding the muse-io data


Hi All,

I was able to get these data in cvs file.

1434006883.594000, /muse/elements/alpha_absolute, 0.9306792, 0.4474087, 0.16060458, 0.60066485
1434006883.594000, /muse/elements/beta_absolute, 0.49884257, 0.5882842, 0.7316572, 0.5087743
1434006883.594000, /muse/elements/delta_absolute, 1.2738596, 1.2862468, 0.83668816, 0.6054497
1434006883.594000, /muse/elements/gamma_absolute, 0.41232353, 0.5051727, 1.1401871, 0.38122332
1434006883.594000, /muse/elements/theta_absolute, 1.1533762, 1.192054, 0.124677196, 0.80493206

Can you please explain what is the value given in the first column.

I wanted to plot these data which I recorded in iPython notebook. What is the best way to take the values of alpha. I was thinking taking the mean of all the 4 channels. I’m a software developer and don’t really understand how to use these data.

I read the documentation in https://sites.google.com/a/interaxon…paths—v3-6-0 and understood the values are given as decibels. If I’m to plot the mean of these alpha_avbsolute and beta_absolute values what would the X axis and Y axis be?

I would really appreciate if someone can help me figure this out.

Thanks and Regards,


The first column is the timestamp in epoch format.

A graph of this data would be decibels over time and the graph will end up looking like this >> https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.sonicPenguins.museMonitor
