Interactive Real-Time creation of functional maps is a key function of scanSTAT. Briefly, this is done by observing the subject behavior and converting it into a suitable reference paradigm for the creation of correlation statistics. In practise, we do this by convolving the time course of the behavioral responses with an estimate of the brain impulse response.
Tutorial/Demonstration - Interactive Creation of Paradigms
|NOTE: This demonstration illustrates the concept, but really requires an imager for any useful functionality.|
If you were performing real-time analysis during acquisition, KeyPress would create a paradigm file for correlational analysis based on the subject's self-reported behavior. This allows you to design experiments in which the subject determined experimental timing, such as cases when the experimental condition is not under experimenter control.
