I randomly came across 9060671 today, owned by the Nielsen Company - tv ratings, etc.

As far as I can tell, it's a cap that measures a person's interest in what they are watching but the set of figures labeled in the fig. 22 series almost suggests that having electrodes implanted on a person's head would aid in keeping the cap on and in good electrical contact with the person's brainwaves.

This link confirms, though, that the cap can function without one having to be turned into Pinhead of the Hellraiser series of movies:

That thing's hideous.  I knew those Nielsen guys were up to no good and am glad I refused to take part in their nefarious schemes.

In fairness, it is less intrusive than the rectal probing the Grays do.
