SyncBox is a must-have solution to boost data quality for concurrent EEG and fMRI recordings
The Syncbox is a unique tool which significantly reduces timing related errors and boosts the quality of MRI artifact correction by synchronizing the clock of the BrainAmp MR / BrainAmp MR plus amplifier with the clock driving the MRI scanner’s gradient switching system.
The SyncBox is essential to recording high quality EEG data in the MR environment and is it compatible with all major commercial MRI scanners available on the market.
- Synchronizes the clock of BrainAmp MR amplifiers with the master clock driving the MRI scanner’s gradient system
- Significantly reduces timing related errors and boosts the quality of gradient artifact correction
- SyncBox scanner interface and scanner clock output are physically connected (using galvanic coupling) to avoid potential influence on the MR scanner system
- Seamless integration with BrainVision Recorder and Analyzer software by means of dedicated trigger codes and implemented algorithms
