Some Thoughts on Code Quality in Academia

I work in a neuroscience lab. Yet, during most day hours (and some night hours), I sit in front of a computer and write code. I guess you could group this code in three domains: Study Preparation This can be workspace definitions, protocols and scripts to run experiments, or low-level code to interface measurement devices….

Boundary element models of several brain areas

Put Shortly: If you want to perform source reconstruction for a region of interest, and therefore ignore some of the grid points of an evenly spaced source grid, these boundary-element models of several brain areas might be useful. In a previous post, i described how to construct a symetric headmodel based on the ICBM152 template… Read more »

A couple of lectures i enjoyed

There is nothing that compares to watching middle-aged men talking nerdy to an invisible audience and scribbling math on a chalkboard! I collected a list of free lectures which i enjoyed. The collection has a focus on STEM, and includes math, probability, information theory and electronics.  I will probably add lectures to the collection when… Read more »

Cheap probe for the magnetic field induced by your TMS

I wanted to check the timing of a TMS-protocol using an external trigger, and sometimes i want to demonstrate the current induction in class. MagVenture sells the MagProbe, to be plugged into BNC or DIN. This would allow you to measure the magnetic field induced by the TMS. They also offer a 3-D version, and… Read more »

Connecting BVR, Magventure and Localite – Make the Box

In an earlier post, i described how to connect Brain Vision Recorder, a Magventure TMS and Localite Software. In a later post, i describe how to solder the circuit. This would allow more flexible recordings  according to your uniqe needs, e.g. multi-channel MEP mapping. As i am currently constructing another box for our second TMS-device,… Read more »

Connecting BVR, Magventure and Localite – Discussing the Idea

Recently, our lab purchased two MagVenture TMS devices together with the Localite setup for navigation. Both companies are independent, but collaborating strongly. Magventure offers the stimulator, Localite the hardware and software for navigation. The Magventure GUI is very easy to handle and i like how the Localite software allows to use template MRIs. It gives… Read more »
