Backyard Brains introduces its new PC
neural recording software. Set up your SpikerBox as you normally would
for your computer, and select the input. Here we have the built-in input going into
the line-in. By clicking and dragging at any point in the
“y”- or “x”-axis space, you can stretch your recording, compress your recording, or make
the amplitude higher or smaller in real-time. You can also record your data by hitting the
record button. And there’s our lovely file! You can play it so you can hear the recording
you just made. By clicking on the up-down, left-right icon
and then moving about your recording window space, you can zoom-in or zoom-out. By clicking the hand icon, you can move your
recording around to look at spaces of interest. And, by clicking on the ruler icon, you can
make various measurements of time in your recording. This will be useful for the upcoming reaction
time experiments. You can also save your file for later analysis,
as well as import it by clicking on the folder icon in live view. You can also click the threshold icon in the
live view to zoom-in on snapshots of when the recording surpasses a selected threshold
you choose. This is brand new software, so let us know
what you use it for, what additional features you would like, and if you find any bugs that
we need to fix. Backyard Brains, Neuroscience for Everyone!
