OK, Ian.  You're getting a little annoying now.  What you have been asked
numerous times is simply, "what are you looking to know?"  Usually when an
intelligent person sees a broad question obviously asked by a neophyte, they
look to narrow down the question in hopes they can keep you from going
hither and yon and finding people claiming to read "brainwaves" and tell you
what you want for breakfast.

Now that you have gone out and insulted a professional (R EEG T means
registered EEG Tech) who facetiously wrote "brainwave technologist".  I
agree she asked the wrong question, but you must admit it had much to do
with your unprepared question.  There is a lot of junk floating around on
usenet and people tend to protect their turf.  Do you still want help in
finding what you need or did you get enough help with "mindwaves"?

It sounds like you've picked up a lot of articles and are devouring them.
What are the questions you think you're answering?  I'm interested to see
how you've made them fit your reality...
