Yes. It looks right. ( A little trick with the ALT-Key ? )

4 bytes version_code
80 char short_description
1 byte number_of_channels
1 byte bytes_per_channel
?? bytes date_and_time_of_recording_start
1 byte ch1_hi
1 byte ch1_lo
1 byte ch2_hi
1 byte ch2_lo
1 byte chn_hi
1 byte chn_lo
As an alternative we could use a data format of commercial
eeg data logger.

If you provide a dialog to store only channels that are used,
the amount of data will be quite moderate for modern PCs.
1 second : 256Hz * 2 channels * 2byte/channel = 1024 bytes
1 minute : 60* 1024 bytes = 61 kB
1 hour: 60* 61kB = 3.7 MB
24 h : 24* 3.7 MB= 88 MB
Lets assume , the lama meditates 1 h , then we would get 3.7 MB
raw data. Compressed to ZIP -Format it will be below 1 MB
