How to control ETG-4000 and receive realtime feedback simultaneously?

February 25th, 2011

If you want to control ETG-4000 with your program through the serial port, and at the same time your experiment requires realtime feedback from the ETG4000, you can either merge the RealtimeOT script and your presentation script (which will be very complicated), or you simply start two MatLab sessions and use one to receive feedback from ETG-4000 and the other to send commands and markers to ETG-4000 and deliver your presentation (diagram below).

Try Stork, a research tool we developed

Stork is a publication alert app developed by us at Stanford. As a researcher we often forget to follow up important publications - and it's practically impossible to search many keywords or researchers' names everyday. Stork can help us to search everyday and notifies us when there are new publications/grants. How Stork helped me?

    Hi Professor,

    As I am new to ETG-4000 how can I give my paradigms to the machine. As ETG-4000 has only one built in paradigm i.e. verbal fluency task is it possible to add more tasks according to one own research e.g. (multiple cognitive tasks)?
