Step 2: Understanding Experiments
Think of an experiment within Ponemah as a container of all the information associated with your telemetry study. The experiment will retain all information regarding your hardware and implant setup, subject information, sampling definitions, and experimental settings (such as graph setup). In addition, it provides the software with context for what you are doing within Ponemah. With this capability, you can automatically name and associate data files collected during acquisition and load data into Ponemah Review without having to search for specific files. You can also export data into Microsoft® Excel, based on criteria you define across the entire experiment; this could be days or weeks.
Creating a New Experiment
If this is the first time opening Ponemah, you will be prompted with the Ponemah Get Started dialog window. From that point forward Ponemah will always load the most recent experiment when it is opened:
- Select Create Experiment.
- Enter an Experiment Name.
- In the Folder field, browse to find the appropriate experiment path. The
default path is the Ponemah_Data directory.
- Select OK.
Note: All data generated during an Experiment will be in a unique Experiment folder. New Experiments can be created by selecting the Experiment menu and choosing Create Experiment.
