4 Steps in APEX experiments

Stimulus generation

Experiment definition

Subject performs experiment

Analysis of results


Stimulus generation
Stimulus generation

  • 1) Wav-files2)NICStream files (*.quf and *.qic)3)NIC1-files4)Laura files

  • Generate them in Matlab using NMT (Cochlear) and own functions

  • Or with other software (Klatt synthesizer, Waveform editing software, self-made software, …)



Experiment definition1

[device]

device=NUCLEUS

[stimuli]

path=c:\Nucleus\Matlab\_work\

stimulus=ACE_sin1500.quf,defaultstandard

stimulus=ACE_sin1000.quf,label=1000

stimulus=ACE_sin1050.quf,label=1050

stimulus=ACE_sin1100.quf,label=1100

Experiment definition


Subject performs experiment
Subject performs experiment

  • Stimulus playback

    • CPS (or PPS) and SPrint for Nucleus

    • Soundcard for wavs

    • TI C30 for Laura

  • Response input

    • Mouse

    • Keyboard

    • Pen-Pad

    • Touch Screen

  • Optional feedback


Analysis of results
Analysis of results

  • Results are appended to experiment file

  • Results depend on type of experiment

    • Mean of last reversals

    • Psychometric curve

    • Confusion matrix

    • Average of adjustments

  • Complete detailed results can be outputted

    • Stimulus – Response pairs

  • Easy “Copy and paste” to analysis program (Excel, Matlab, SPSS, SAS, …)
