Re: Solutions for sending triggers in an AEP (EEG) experiment?



Somewhat dated test results of the timing characteristics of inexpensive sound cards can be found at
http://www.neurobs.com/presentation/hardware_corner/sound_cards/test_results.


For better quality cards, delays between the parallel port trigger range from 0.3-0.5 ms (mean), with a variance (time jitter) of less than 0.1 ms. This is good enough for most AEPs (except perhaps the cochlear microphonic or ABRs) provided that you correct for the mean delay.
