The MEG Core has two types of tactile stimulators: the airpuff stimulator and the Galileo system.

Airpuff Stimulator


  • In MSR:
    • Attach airpuff device to channel 1,2, or 3 with medical tape.
    • Place on subject’s finger to demonstrate pressure and press the corresponding valve (1,2, or 3) on the airpuff box.
    • Remove and replace after the subject is situated in the helmet. (They will need their hands to hold the headpads in place.)
  • In Lab:
    • Connect Airpuff channel to ADC cable 1 or 4 at the airpuff box with a t-connector.
  • At the ADC box:
    • Connect the ADC cable (corresponding to the number you used above, 1 or 4) to D0 with a t-connector and attach a short BNC cable to channel 1 on the DSQ 3500 Electronics Control Console.

Note: ADC001 is the expected input for the HV Protocol. Your script may use ADC002. Be sure to confirm which input is expected by your scripts.
