I am curious about the magnitude of the timing advantage offered by the new Stimtracker device. I have been using superlab to send timing signals to my biopac physio equipment during studies, and have generally been happy with the results. To date, though, my studies have primarily involved physio reactivity taking place over the course of seconds to minutes.
I am in the process of adding EEG equipment to my lab. Would it problematic to continue simply using my existing equipment–i.e. is the timing accuracy inadequate for ERP studies? I’m currently using Superlab and an RB-730 response pad for reaction time data, and simply sending timing signals to my Biopac equipment to mark the onset and offset of different tasks. Clearly, for ERP studies, I’ll need to send timing signals reflecting stimulus presentation, and participant responses. How much more accurate would the time-marking be with Stimtracker?
