I am trying to launch a new fMRI experiment. When I was at Vanderbilt in the States, the issue of syncing my experiment with the scanner was really easy; the trigger pulse and subjects’ responses were recognized as simple keyboard presses and all the devices were connected with USB.
Now, in my new place, there is a Philips Achieva scanner, hooked up to an old lumina controller. It does not have any usb connection.
I really need to connect the lumina controller to my McBook pro (15-inch, retina) and sync the scanner with my psychopy script.
Please tell me everything that I need from hardware to software setup.
