Neural Signal Processing Toolkit (NSP)

       NSP is a 32 Bit MS-Windows application for diagnosis and therapy evaluation of pathological tremor. It is designed for tremor recording and analysis in clinical routine as well as in clinical and physiological research. The toolkit consists of a set of programs that perform spectral analyses of EMG signals and evaluation of results. Currently the main Toolkit components are

  • RawData: Reads the EMG compressed signals stored in specific format files and interactively displaying them on the screen.
  • Analysis: Reads the EMG signals from files together with patients' data and recording's parameters. Interactively analyses the signals. Displaying the results of analysis and associated patient's data
  • Results: Processing and evaluation of the results of analysis
  • Online: Interactively displays signals during recording





      RETAX is a software tool for surgical planning and analysis of the neurophysiological recordings data from experimental rats.  The data can be correlated with the Rat Brain Atlas  for targeting of functional landmarks. It brings a non-stereotactic post-operative scans into stereotactic alignment with the operative data. Actual trajectories and electrode placements can then be compared with the original surgical plan and lesion volumes can be calculated and compared with the ones from the sliced cadaver brain.
       Beyond surgical planning, the software performs spike train analysis using an algorithm that detects burst and oscillatory pattern of neuronal activity.
       Targeting and trajectory planning are quickly achieved through a simple interface. The screen layout is configured to the user’s preferences





        SCOMP is a software tool used to compare the actual techniques of target coordinate determination for functional stereotactic procedures. Representing the localization of the pretargeting points for different sets of patients in the three dimensional coordinate system of the stereotactic frame, we can obtain the difference between the theoretical targets obtained by two methods.
         The configurable screen layout permits the localization of neuroanatomical targets in the basal ganglia using different techniques in accordance with the user needs and preferences. Snapshots can be taken directly from the screen and printed for complete documentation.




 3DGanglia(under development)

3DGanglia is a software module of a software system for analysis of neuroimaging data  It is used for fast  surface rendering of basal ganglia  nuclei. In the present version, it is restricted for visualization of the atlas database but the future versions  will include the possibility to combine visualization of the atlas with objects derived from image data. A number of rendering parameters can be adjusted by the user including material parameters, colour and translucency of an object
