These Event Presentation & Marking Systems include StimTracker (Duo or Quad), m-pod, SuperLab Pro Stimulus Presentation Software, and BIOPAC interface cable (option to interface MP160 System also includes Isolated Digital Interface STP100D).
StimTracker Duo and Quad autonomously detect the onset of events to avoid operating system delays. The Quad adds direct TTL output, support for vocal response onset (voice key), and more light sensors. StimTracker uses m-pod to deliver its signals, which means you can choose which types of events are sent to the recorder.
Use m-pod to map any input signal to any output pin, or combine any number of input signals to a single output pin and build your very own custom output table. With its speedy microprocessor, this translation power adds a minuscule 50µs delay. Use m-pods to get all, or only, the signals that you need. In some experiments, you may want to mark the onset of participants’ key presses. In others, these markers get in the way and you want instead more data bits available for markers you send via USB. Or perhaps you need a mix of both.
No more fussing over the right connector size, gender, and pin assignments—just choose the module style for your specific interface and enjoy instant compatibility:
- IO: interface directly to the I/O port on MP36 and MP36R units, or
- STP: interface to MP160 Systems via included STP100D
