I'm experimenting with a consumer-grade ElectroEncephaloGram (EEG) sensor and have created the image below using the device. Because the sensor on the device does not use a suction cup, there are a lot of motion artifacts when the headband contact is poor (during motion).
This got me thinking - neurons have mass and thus inertia, and they are not glued to each other. When the person moves (actually rotates) the head around, forces of inertia are applied to neurons/axons. I'm interested if such motion produces any kind of firing artifacts within the brain or how the brain filters out such firing?
This reminded me of this article: (5-HT and motor control: a hypothesis). Could it be that some neurons stop firing in response to movement?
