Following task design and programming, you should conduct one or several pilot runs. During the pilot, problems with the task may be identified and worked out, prior to running actual subjects. The data collected during a pilot is also typically analyzed on the behavioral level, which involves marking the events in the dataset from the trigger and ADC channels. At this time other problems in the task programming may be identified.

  • Most protocols will require a pilot study to test equipment, paradigms / programs and refine procedures with a test subject. Users must provide their own volunteer subject; if this is an external volunteer, he.she must be consented according to IRB guidelines.
  • Pilot Studies must be scheduled via the MEG Web Calendar. Please indicate in the description that time is being requested for a "Pilot Study".
