Medical Eeg wiring: not shielded cable

    Hi I have just received a high density electrocap for recording eeg -signals and discovered that the cable that leads to the electrodes is not shielded.
    Does this probably corrupt the signal?

    It is possible that the unit uses a differential measure that lowers the noise.
    And I saw many pretty cables that were well grounded but look like they weren't.
