Download Protocols

Below are a collection of protocols which run on Espion software V3 and higher and are designed to ISCEV standards. To install the protocol into the current connected database of your Espion program, download the protocol file and copy onto your console. Next go to the “Database Center” menu within the Espion program and from here press the “Transfer In” button and select the protocol file to import. The protocol will now appear in the current list of protocols available.

1

ISCEV standard ERG protocol for dark rod, dark maximal response, dark OP, light maximal, light OP and 30Hz flicker with sequential eye recording of both eyes. OS followed by OD. A hardcopy of the protocol parameters can be found in the following table.

ISCEV EOG 4 CHAN

ColorDome

3 (build 21 onwards)

4

ISCEV standard EOG 4 channel protocol using 3 steps; trial step, dark phase and light phase. 2 chans are virtual showing raw unfiltered data. 13 minutes per step. Uses bandpass filter. Requires Espion V3 patch 21 or later software

ISCEV EOG 2 CHAN

ISCEV standard VEP 3 channel protocol. Oz, O3, O4, positive down, 5 steps: 15mins, 30mins, 60mins, 120mins and 300mins

ISCEV EOG REV 3 (EXT TRIG)

External Trigger

3 (build 19 onwards)

3

Similar to EOG protocol above, except it produces a trigger pulse on the external trigger output to trigger a 3rd party EOG LED system.

The next table contains several Microsoft Excel spreadsheets designed as templates to help you design your protocols on paper (or in Excel) before committing them in the software, The templates contain a list of all the protocol parameters including a description, input ranges and suggested values.

Download User Defined Files

Below are a collection of user defined waveform files for custom control of the ColorDome/ColorBurst stimulators. Files may be edited in any ASCII editor e.g. Microsoft Wordpad or Notepad or a spreadsheet such as Excel. To run any file, download, and copy into the Espion directory. Display the stimulus menu and select the “User Defined” flash mode. Then enter the filename and press the apply button to see the stimulus.

Stimulator

Description

User defined files.pdf [53kB]

Document describing how to write user defined ColorBurst and ColorDome scripts to create your own stimulus waveforms (V3 only)

vector.col

ColorDome/ColorBurst

Define a color CIE vector between two CIE end colors and sinusoidally traverse the vector at 1Hz. (This may not work on all systems)

formula.col

Dual
ColorDome/ColorBurst

Similar to “vector.col”, but defines a vector between red and green and if dual stimulators selected, the outputs will be 180 degrees out of phase. This is an example using a complex formula rather than explicit ms timing blocks

longsine.col

ColorDome/ColorBurst

Example of a very long stimulus. This produces a 10 second sinusoidal red output

pulse.col

ColorDome/ColorBurst

Example of user defined variables. This stimulus produces a pulse with variable mark/space timing, intensity and color all of which can be controlled from the stimulus menu

xenon.col

ColorDome

Example of double pulse xenon flash with variable flash intensities, and inter-flash period

sine.col

ColorDome/ColorBurst

Produces red, green and blue sinusoidal outputs at 1Hz, 2Hz and 3Hz simultaneously
