SciWorks Discovery Data Acquisition & Analysis Software

SciWorks Discovery:
Comprehensive data acquisition and analysis
software for any research protocol.
From 1 to 128 channels.

SciWorks® Discovery And Discovery Pro Data Acquisition & Analysis System

A-M Systems SciWorks Discovery software and advanced A/D hardware is the perfect complement to our low-channel count extracellular or intracellular amplifiers. It is designed to work with 1 to 8 single-ended channels of data. If you require more data processing capability, then consider our Discovery Pro system with more channels, optional video support, and a faster sampling rate. SciWorks Discovery is a real-time data acquisition, analysis, and instrument control application designed for a wide variety of electrophysiology experiments. It provides the user with a single interface to control instrumentation, perform real-time data analysis, including multi-unit spike sorting and separation, generate complicated stimulation patterns, and write data to a multiple of common industry-defined data formats.

Common applications include:

  • Single-Unit Recording*
  • Multi-Unit Recording*
  • Evoked Responses
  • Field Potentials
  • EEG
  • ECG / EKG
  • ERG
  • EMG
  • Sleep Studies
  • Behavior
  • LTP / LTD
  • Voltage Clamp
  • Current Clamp
  • Dose Response Curve
  • Motor Unit Activity
  • Intracellular Recording
  • Respiration
  • Pulse Oximetry
  • Motion
  • Blood Pressure
  • GSR
  • Brainstem Evoked Response
  • Auditory Evoked Response**
  • Video Capture and Analysis***

Data acquisition and analysis processes are seamlessly integrated into a single software package. Users can define how the experiment should run, collect data, run complicated analysis tools, and store raw and analyzed data all at the same time—without having to change software packages.

Discovery can be paired with a BNC breakout box providing direct access to the most critical connections of the A/D card or a screw-terminal accessory for a less expensive solution.

See the A/D Hardware tab for additional information.

8-Channel Data Acquisition Interface for SciWorks Discovery

SciWorks® SciWorks Discovery Pro Data Acquisition And Analysis System

While SciWorks Discovery is the ideal data acquisition and analysis system for most electrophysiology experimental protocols, there are situations where upgrading to Sciworks Discovery Pro makes scientific and financial sense. If you are interested in acquiring and processing more than 8 channels of data, then upgrading to one of our SciWorks Discovery Pro options can give you access to up to 128 channels of capability. SciWorks Discovery’s underlying 8-channel data acquisition card’s clockrate is sufficient to generate simple stimuli. However, if your experimental protocols require delivering complicated stimulus trains, or auditory stimuli, then it is recommended to upgrade to SciWorks Discovery Pro. Finally, if your research protocols involve capturing, measuring, and analyzing video data, then SciWorks Discovery Pro with the optional VideoBench add-in is the software package to be used.

Upgrading to SciWorks Discovery Pro is also cost effective. While you can pay a price difference later to upgrade from the Discovery to the Discovery Pro software package, it is necessary to purchase the required a/d hardware that supports Discovery Pro at full price. Thus, purchasing Discovery Pro upfront means not double paying for acquisition hardware systems.

See the next tab for a comparison chart between the features of Discovery and Discovery Pro.

SciWorks Discovery and Discovery Pro can be configured to run any of the following experiments, and countless others.

The following list contains only a few examples of the variety of experiments SciWorks Discovery can perform and analyze.

Click on the section headings for details and videos regarding how SciWorks can be used in your lab to measure average responses, measure population spike amplitudes, perform Fourier analysis to obtain a power spectrum, interval measurements, detect seizures, and perform many other protocols. Adding VideoBench to either Discovery Pro bundle enables video collection and analysis functionality.

EEG Recording and Analysis in SciWork

The example experiment is recording two channels of field potential and five channels of continuous EEG in an awake behaving animal using SciWorks Discovery. Discovery generated a biphasic pulse to be delivered at a regular interval. The amplitude of the pulse is maintained for a group of stimulations and then automatically changed to a new value.

For each group of responses an average is response is calculated. Automatic artifact rejection is applied so that only valid sweeps are accumulated. For each averaged waveform various waveform parameters are calculated (i.e. area, pop spike amplitude and slope) and displayed in the real-time spreadsheet.

Finally, a Fourier analysis is performed on the EEG channels and the power spectrum displayed.

Evoked Potential in SciWork Expiermenter

This video demonstrates SciWorks Discovery’s capability to perform simultaneous data acquisition and analysis, as EP parameters Population Spike Amplitude and EP Area are extracted from the elicited evoked potential, logged into a spreadsheet, and plotted on a scatter plot.

EEG Spectral Analysis in SciWorks Discovery

The example experiment is configured to record 24 channels of EEG continuously over a 24 hour period of time while looking for a seizure using the Discovery Pro 64 bundle.

A spectral (Fourier) analysis is performed on each of the channels, and the power values calculated for each of the common power bands and were logged to a spreadsheet for additional analysis if needed.

In addition, the power band values of four selected channels are plotted continuously as a contour plot.

EEG EMG Recording in SciWork Expiermenter

This example experiment continuously recorded both EEG and EMG from the animal. Bursts of EMG activity were detected using the Analysis burst detection tool. The burst durations and inter burst intervals were calculated and counted with the values automatically displayed in the spreadsheet.

The detected EMG burst was extracted from the continuous EMG data streams. A Fourier analysis was performed on the extracted waveform and the Fourier transform was added to the running average. The power spectrum was also calculated from the EEG data stream. This was all performed in real-time using SciWorks Discovery Pro, but the same experiment could be performed with SciWorks Discovery.

Seizure Activity Recording in SciWorks

SciWorks Discovery Pro’s time frequency and burst analysis tools were used to automatically detect and quantify seizure activity. When a potential burst is detected, markers are automatically entered into the output data stream for both the on and off times of the seizure.

In this video, a two seizures are detected and analyzed.

The same experiment can be performed using 8 ch of EEG data with SciWorks Discovery.

With Sciworks Discovery or Discovery Pro, you can sort in real time using either the built-in Autosort algorithm, or customize it to capture the waveforms you want.

Features available during spike sorting include:

  • Automatized sorting at the push of a single button
  • Cross-unit or cross electrode analysis, including phase and difference measurements.
  • Support for single electrodes, stereotrodes, tetrodes, multi-channel n-trodes, and multielectrode arrays.
  • Ability to reject invalid waveforms
  • Principal Component Analysis
  • Waveform feature parameters, correlation coefficient, and cursor values can be used to sort.
  • Minimum critical distance calculations to identify when separate units are in the same cluster
  • Raster formats and point plots of waveforms
  • Operate on entire file, or selected portions and apply clustering to remainder.
  • Elliptical and rectangular boundaries
Spike Sorting in SciWorks

This example experiment recorded four channels of multi-unit data continuously along with a single TTL marking channel. The unit activity was detected and the units extracted from the continuous data stream using the built-in AutoSort tool.

Simultaneous with the acquisition of unit activity an auditory stimulus was delivered with white noise in one ear and a tone in the other. A marker in the data stream was added, and peri-event time histograms (PETHs), inter-event interval histograms (IEIHs) and dot rasters were created. Finally, the unit activity firing rate was displayed (by sorted units) in a rate meter display (behind the other windows) for later logging.

SciWorks Discovery Pro 64 enables you to record spikes on up to 32 channels simultaneously with a single breakout box, or 64 channels when paired with two data acquisition boxes (It's the speed of the sampling rate that determines how many channels of spikes you can record). Discovery Pro 16 is fast enough to simultaneously record 16 channels of spikes, while SciWorks Discovery can record spikes on 3 channels with its bundled a/d card.

Spike Sorting in SciWorks

These imagea nd videos demonstrate spike sorting on an experiment consisting of data from 24 simultaneously recorded electrodes.

VideoBench is a suite of tools that adds video capture and tracking capability to your SciWorks Discovery Plus capability.

SciWorks VideoBench

VideoBench functionality can augment real­time data acquisition as well as be used during post­experiment replay, editing, and analysis.

When the video is simultaneously captured with other types of experimental data (i.e. electrophysiological signals) it is precisely synchronized in time. And don't worry about file size, SciWork’s unique frame­by­frame compression allows for hours of recording video while still retaining the image quality of any single frame.

In this image, neural responses are coded according to animal behavior, such as active search or supported rearing.

SciWorks VideoBench Video Tracking

The tracking features of VideoBench provide the functionality needed for "tracking" one or more spots on a frame­by­frame basis. Spot color and brightness are easily defined using a color sampler. Tracked points can be tracked full­frame or can be limited to one or more regions in either a maze, an open field or multiple cages. Quality of tracking is provided numerically or visually by overlaying points on top of the video. Various orientations, grid, and display options further enhance the tracking capabilities. Tracked points can be saved to file along with other experimental data for further replay, editing and analysis.

VideoBench is not compatible with SciWorks Discovery.

EKG and Heart Rate Variability in SciWorks

Heart Rate was recorded continuously and the variability of the interval R values was tracked and plotted using FFT analysis. All values were logged, and the heart rate variability was plotted on a frequency histogram showing the distribution of time intervals

Mismatched Negativity Study in SciWorks Data Acquisition & Analysis Suite

This video shows a Mismatched Negativity Study. Discovery Pro was used to generate audio tones stimuli. Evoked responses to a standard tone were recorded. At random intervals, a deviant tone was introduced to elicit the mismatched ERP. Power was calculated for both the standard and deviant responses after the recorded potentials were smoothed.

Discovery Pro was used to generate audio tones stimuli. Evoked responses to a randomized sequence of frequencies and amplitudes were recorded and quantified. An auditory tuning curve was plotted. Larger amplitude cross-hatches indicate greater neural responses.

Recording Respiration, EKG, and Pulse Oximetry in SciWorks

Neonatal respiration was monitored and filtered, along with EKG and Pulse Oximetry. Respiration volume, inspiration, and expiration was measured and tracked.

SciWorks EEG recording from 50 electrodes located in a skull cap

EEG recording from 50 electrodes located in a skull cap were continuously recorded. Power spectrum were analyzed, and displayed on a contour plot.

Note: this data was collected with non-A-M Systems Manufactured FDA approved instrumentation for human research studies.
