Getting Started #1: Setting Up the Rig

Getting Started #1: Setting Up the Rig

Launch Synapse and establish the hardware to software connection. Synapse auto-detects your TDT hardware and uses that information to streamline your experiment design. As you build your experiment, you won't have to think about the particulars of your hardware setup.

Getting Started #2: Edit Screen Overview

Getting Started #2: Edit Screen Overview

A guided tour of Synapse's user interface and an introduction to fundamental processes, like operational modes and user and subject tracking.
