I wonder what the skip function in launchScan actually does. I assumed it was the number of pulses that would be skipped before continuing the script, but a brief test taught me that the script will continue on the very first (emulated) pulse.
I know that scanner usually performs a couple (typically 5) scans without sending a triggering pulse to stabilise the recording, but what is the point in informing the PsychoPy script about this number, when it has no significance for its functioning, as it just waits for the first pulse to continue? Or am I missing something here?
Thanks in advance,
