Chapter 3. Triggered acquisition

 Legend:
1
- Control Tab 0 switches between Continuous and Triggered acquisition (this chapter).
2
- Raw signal graph (trial 1of 12).
3
- Spikes location (spikes are determined by hardware voltage discriminator outside of the FSPS program).
4
- Colorful lines are corresponding to different external events during task execution
5
- Name of the recording folder.
6
- Control button “Update graphs” serves to redraw ‘Raw signal graphs’ when it’ necessary
7
-  Button “Amplitude” allows changing Y scaling factor (for raw signal graphs, p.10) from ring menu.
8
- Group labeling information for each set of triggered acquisition.
9
- Tab Control 1 (advanced triggering settings and PSTH, based on spike occurrence determined by hardware voltage discriminator).
10
- Group graphs and indicators representing a recording session (12 trials in our case).
11
- Group control to include trials for PSTH composition
12
- Fast selection of all trials to be included into hardware-based PSTH graph
13
- Fast unselectition button for hardware-based PSTH graph
14
- Fast automatic extraction and visualization of PCs scores for each trial
15
- Control button “DAQ” enabling triggered acquisitions and recording functions 16-19
16
- “Scrolling” button allows the program to change automatically the “Record №” and “Condition” (if many) when the acquisition of the current test has finished.
17
- Control button “Continuous” is performing the same operation as described later at 18 automatically incrementing “Record no.” and starting a new trial. It deactivates when “Record no.” is reaching value 12 and all your Conditions are complete.
18
- Control button “Record” starts waiting the trigger event (by default at PFI0 of NI DAQ) and then writing/overwriting acquired signal at the position indicated in control 22
19
- “NEW” button allows creating and designing your acquisition Set by selecting and naming different experimental Condition.
20
- Indicates the current name of Condition in the Set.
21
- Control button “PLAY” is converting raw signal of the current trial (indicated at “Record no.” control) into sound file (WAV format) and producing it through computer sound board.
22
- “Record no.” control serves to navigate between trials (write, overwrite or convert into WAV format). To select particular trial (to overwrite it, for instance) the “Scrolling” button must be switched Off.
23
- Indicator of the total number of Conditions in the recording Set.
24
- Indicator of the current Condition.
