  1. Dear Sir
    I have a master’s degree in Nuclear Phys./ Univesity of Mosul/Iraq. Currently I am working in the field of teaching in University of Zakho (http://www.uoz-krg.org/). Our Ministry (Minstry of Higher Education and Scientific Reseach) has starts of the projects called Split Site, which is the completion of Ph.D. degree by selecting two supervisors, one of them in inside the country and the other outside the country. Now I have a supervisor in my country but now I need for another supervisor outside my country in specialized Plasma fusion, so I contacted you to take your opinion if possible to be supervisor in my Ph.D. research, and if you have any proposal in plasma fusion, it would be good for me and I will be grateful to you.

    Sincerely yours

    Sulaiman H. Al-Sadoon

  3. Dear Sir

    Sir, i think that u should see the video on the above link for your brain cepal project.

  5. I saw the video link. It is using Emotiv Epoch neuroheadset to capture EEG waves and train for four actions – this is provided by the Software given with headset. I have used the same device since 2011. However most of the people find it difficult to train the system. Most cases, I have found it useful to capture head movement and facial expression or eye blink to operate computer and other devices. You can see those stories on the blog.

    It would have been good if the video had showed at least one user using it. That would be more convincing.
