Experimenter Data Analysis and Playback is a SciWorks plugin for data analysis and post experiment processing of data. It provides the data playback functionality associated with Experimenter Real-time while at the same time providing you with the ability to analyze existing data from various software applications. Experimenter includes a range of analysis tools that can work together or independently to process and analyze all types of electrophysiology, physiology and behavioral data.

At the heart of Experimenter Analysis is the easy to use and logical graphical user interface. It is designed around accomplishing various types of common tasks and analyses specifically related to electrophysiological, physiological and behavioral data. The batch processing feature gives you the ability to analyze and process multiple files at the same time while the drag, drop and analyze functionality lets you works with specific sections of data within a file. Whether your data and data analysis is continuous, discontinuous or trial based -- Experimenter Analysis can handle it.

The Experimenter Analysis plugin is integrated as a stand-alone SciWorks Analysis Only package or as part of a SciWorks Data Acquisition package. In either case, SciWorks is an invaluable tool which helps your productivity in the lab and provides you with relevant scientific results.

Data Analysis
- All Analysis can be performed real-time (while data is being acquired) or from file playback
- Detect and extract events based on software window discriminators
- Real-time Multi-Unit Spike Sorting & Separation using the DataWave AutoSort plugin
- Extract key waveform parameters such as peak, valley, area, dV/dt, and many others
- Waveform averaging
- Event or spike triggered averaging
- Digital filtering
- Detect waveform bursts
- Detect spike/event bursts
- Rate meters and rate gauges
- Firing rate grids
- Perievent time (PETH), Inter-event interval (IEIH) histograms and Dot Rasters
- Cross Correlation Histograms
- Continuous Event interval analysis
- Signal conditioning such as auto-baseline and waveform smoothing
- Statistical calculations for waveform and single value data
- Fourier Analysis including various power calculations
- Sonograms and spectrograms
- Statistical distribution analysis and display
- Acquire to a real time spreadsheet for custom analysis and reporting
- N-ProbeTM Analysis for custom multi-array and multi-channel electrode analysis for tetrodes, stereotrodes and multi-array electrodes
- Perform math operations defined by custom equations to operate on single value or array data (i.e. histograms or waveforms)
- Curve fitting of single values
Data Display
- All data can be displayed while data is being acquired or analyzed
- Windows for displaying all types of data, including both acquired and analyzed
- Windows can be zoomed, auto-scaled, and both x and y axes can be controlled independently
- Extremely fast display options
- Numerous window controls for controlling windows independently or as a group
- Automatically hide, show and bring to top windows during experiment execution
Markers, Messaging and Data Annotation
- An unlimited number of flags and trial information can be recorded simultaneously with data
- Extensive updating capabilities of stimulus, counter, digital I/O in trial markers
- Trial markers and messages recorded in data files provide extensive off-line analysis capabilities
- Unique ability to assign identification (ID) information to different types of data
- Interactive marker editing (insert, move, delete) provided post experiment using the SciWorks DataView components.
File Output and Data Replay
- Write to or read from one or more files simultaneously during experimentation
- High performance file format allows for multiple data types (including raw, analyzed and markers) to be saved to the same file
- Multiple formats supported for both import and export (i.e. DDF, WorkBench, Discovery, ABF, CED, Neuralynx, Plexon, EDF, NEV, Neuroshare, and ASCII)
- Data can be replayed from file just as it was acquired using slower, actual, or faster timing
- Drag & Drop, Copy & Paste complete files or selected data for replay and analysis
Experimental Control, Execution and Timing
- Multiple procedures can be executed simultaneously and independently of each other
- Dynamically change experiment parameters while the experiment is executing
- Conditional experiment execution based on experimental results and external equipment
- Timers, counters and looping controls for automated experimentation
Custom User Interface
- Design your own menus to use during real-time and file playback
- Design your own dialogs to use both at real-time and file playback
Calibration
- Work with calibrated and non-calibrated data in the same experiment
- Both manual and automatic calibration techniques
- Calibration information saved to data files for easy replay of data in calibrated format
- Calibration settings can be stored in files and recalled for different types of experimentation
Timing Calibration
- Timing calibration provides synchronization for all timing mechanisms
- Timing calibration gaurantees high resolution timing for experiments lasting hours, days, weeks etc.
- Automatic timing calibration methods simplify the calibration process
- Timing calibrations can be stored on a "per device" basis
Experimental Design and User Interaction
- Complex experimental protocol can be easily created using a combination of events and objects
- Real-time logging of experiment protocols and execution
- Design status warn when settings are incomplete or incorrect even before execution
- Experiment protocols are easily defined with common defaults and intuitive settings
- Unlimited number of experimental definitions can be created, saved and recalled at any time
- Multithreaded and event driven execution for Windows XP, 7 & 8
- Experiment execution allows complete user interaction
- Complete and thorough online help system, tutorials and samples make Experimenter easy to use
