First of, I apologize if Spike 5.03 is no longer supported by CED and questions asked on old software are deemed irrelevant, but I found manuals and upgrades for Spike 5 on the CED website, so I assume support is not yet discontinued for Spike 5?
We have Spike 5.03, a Power 1401, and wish to capture XY positional data from a PC mouse (or a very similar device). But MouseTalk is only available from version 8 and onwards, and I was unable to find it as a standalone for download or to know if it would be compatible with version 5 at all:http://ced.co.uk/ensearch/search.php?zo ... =mouseTalk
Is it possible to capture XY positional data from a mouse in Spike 5 without going through the 1401?
If not, do you need two BNC cables for the X and Y signal to plug in the 1401? or would it be possible to capture the two data, two values, through one BNC cable?
In either scenarios (through USB to laptop, through BNC to 1401), what do you think would be the delay between mouse signal to the final spike 2 data file? Would this delay be stable or vary a lot? a 10 ms uncertainty on the timestamps is already big for our experiment.
Thanks in advance for your help!
We are using an MRI compatible joystick that uses a 932 interface:https://www.curdes.com/mainforp/interfa ... -932b.html
We are not even certain yet that the XY positional signal can be converted to BNC (it probably can), but this is a question for Current Designs
