Board Tab


Board configurations can now be declared global using the new Board Tab. After you specify all necessary ADC, DAC and TTL configurations, save your NeuroMatic configurations (NeuroMatic > Configs > Save > All). You will then be able to access these global configurations when creating a new stimulus protocol.

When creating your configurations, you are required to use a unique name for each configuration (e.g. “Vmem”, “Imem”, “Vstep”, etc.). These names are what NeuroMatic uses to find the correct configuration when initializing a stimulus protocol. This makes it easier to share stimulus protocols between rigs.

Board – drop-down menu showing the type of board that is configured (ITC or NIDAQ). If you wish to test acquisition without accessing the board, select “Demo”.

Hide – hide this tab. After you create your global configurations, there is little reason to access them during an experiment. Later, if you wish to recreate the tab, select Tab on the Stim Board tab.

Table – edit your configurations using a table.

Reset – reset the current configuration or all configurations to default values.

Extract From Stims – in previous versions of NeuroMatic, board configurations were located in individual stimulus protocols. The easiest way to access these old configurations is to open all your previous stimulus protocols and then select the Extract From Stims button. NeuroMatic will extract the old configurations and create new global ones for you. Afterward, you should check your ADC, DAC and TTL configurations by selecting the Table button.


Board Configurations

Board – select the device to record from (or send an output to) if you have more than one device.

Channel – the device channel number to record (or send an output to).

Name – the unique name you wish to call this configuration.

Units – select the appropriate units for this configuration.

Scale – enter the appropriate scale conversion factor. For ADC inputs, waves are scaled after being acquired. For DAC and TTL outputs, waves are scaled before acquisition.

Pre-Sample – ADC input only. If checked, data will be acquired immediately before acquisition of each epic. For example, this mode could be used to acquire data from a temperature sensor, or telegraph outputs from your amplifier. Pre-sampled input are saved to waves in the current NeuroMatic data folder with name “CT_” + configuration name.

Tgain – telegraph gain. ADC input only. To use an ADC input as a telegraph gain.

ADC, DAC, TTL – toggle between ADC input configurations, and DAC and TTL output configurations.

Number – NeuroMatic allows any number of input configurations to be created. Access your different configurations with the SetVariable control on the bottom right. Or use the quick-access buttons labeled with numbers. Or access all at once by selecting the Table button.
