What are you trying to achieve?: I am running a behavioural task while participants have an EEG recording. The task presents a 1 second tone, and then instructs participants to move their (left or right) hand for 15 seconds. I would like to generate an event marker (audio tone, 15seconds of moving) signal from the computer that can be inputted to the EEG amplifier as a separate channel.
To do this, I think I need to use pyserial functions as I am using a Mac laptop without a parallel port. I therefore would imagine that I need the following electronics circuit:
Mac–> Usb cable --> I/O DAQ box (I have a NI USB-6009) --> cable to EEG amplifier input
Can anyone please advise on a) whether this is even possible and b) any code I might need to include as I don’t think I can use the ‘Parallel out I/O’ component in the builder.
What did you try to make it work?: Nothing really- I am new to this and looking for guidance!
What specifically went wrong when you tried that?:
Include pasted full error message if possible. “That didn’t work” is not enough information.
