Spike2 version 10 more details, download

Spike2 is generally used as a chart recorder for continuous data recording. It can also be configured to record triggered output or evoked response data. Applications range from neuroscience, cardiovascular and physiological studies, through to engineering applications.

Spike2 captures event and waveform data to hard disk with simultaneous output of control pulses, steps, ramps, sinewaves and arbitrary waveforms. A flexible analysis environment allows multiple windows for both raw and processed data, with simultaneous data acquisition and analysis. Waveform processing options include feature detection with automated measurements, averages, power spectra and digital filtering. Spike processing options include on and off-line spike shape recognition, INTH, PSTH, RATE histograms, correlations and also off-line clustering with principal component analysis.

The script language allows you to customise the program for specialist applications, and to automate complicated or repetitive tasks. Spike2 version 10 requires Windows 7, 8 or Windows 10 and supports 64-bit versions. See the compatibility table.
