Programmable Stimulation System for E-Prime

The STMEPM Programmable Stimulation System for E-Prime allows a user to interface the STMISOLA Stimulator with E-Prime to control the stimulus frequency and stimulus intensity for real-time stimulus delivery changes based on a subject’s responses. It is also possible to hardcode the stimulus intensity levels in the presentation so that predefined stimulus levels are delivered […]
