In the past years many NeuroIS studies have been published using different neuroimaging tools like electroencephalography (EEG) or functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). In general most of the EEG studies have been performed in the lab, where participants are mounted with EEG sensors sitting in front of the computer and following the presented instructions. There are several mobile EEG systems on the market which could be used to investigate brain activity of human behaviour in the field, like during sports or social activities. In this paper we will present a novel system for EEG-based NeuroIS studies out of the lab, named mobile NeuroIS. The system consists of a wireless EEG system and a smartphone, serving as a monitor. Beside the system architecture we will present first evaluation data of three participants using it as mobile Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) application.
