use OpenBCI_GUI for neurofeedback in gamma ? [resolved]
I need the software to be able to set to a custom frequency (42Hz, but being able to set a custom frequency would be better) and view the amplitude over time of that specific frequency from all electrodes for use in biofeedback.
Seeing all frequencies at once makes it hard to use in meditation.
The frequency I am interested in is 42Hz, this frequency is seen in higher amplitudes in Buddhist monks, and also shown to increase intelligence.

Long-term meditators self-induce high-amplitude gamma synchrony during mental practice
Gamma activity indicates a constellation of neurons binding together for the first time in the brain to create a new neural network pathway. This is the creation of a new idea. Immediately following that gamma spike, the new idea pops into our consciousness, which we identify as the aha! moment.
Posterior Beta and anterior gamma oscillations predict cognitive insight
Neural synchronization in the gamma band has been associated with feature binding and intelligence. Using neurofeedback, we aimed at changing the power of the gamma band and investigated whether these changes would influence behavioral measures of feature binding and intelligence. The results show that people are indeed able to alter the power in the gamma band if provided with neurofeedback. Moreover, the increase of gamma band power was related to a decrease of binding costs and an increase in intelligence, suggesting that the control of feature binding and intelligence share a common underlying mechanism.
