After starting the application, the main menu opens:
Button №1 “Start Work” starts the full cycle of the program for receiving information.
Button №2 “Select Symbol” allows  to select additional symbols after the completion of the main program cycle.
Button № 3 «Send Protocol» is designed to send a report on additionally selected symbols.
Line number 4 with the current time of the device is needed for easy synchronization of the start of the experiment.
Before using the program it is recommended to set the exact time in order to avoid discrepancies in the beginning of the experiment.

The main cycle consists of the following steps:

1. Start receiving cycle.

2. Sound Synchronization (40 sec.)

3. Color Synchronization (7 Colors for 30 seconds).

4. Reception of the first symbol (60 seconds).

5. Selection of the received symbol from the list of 50 symbols (30 seconds).

6. Reception of the second symbol (60 seconds).

7. Selection of the received symbol from the list of 50 symbols (30 seconds).

8. Reception of the third symbol (60 seconds).

9. Selection of the received symbol from the list of 50 symbols (30 seconds).

10. Filling out personal data and sending a protocol.


Running a receive cycle is the main function of the application. The start of the cycle is carried out manually, by pressing the “Start Work” button at a time strictly determined by the experiment leaders. After the end of the pre-synchronization cycle (PP.2-3), the user begins to receive the transmitted symbol. At the end of the transmission time (60 seconds), the user must select one or more received symbols. The selection is made within 30 seconds after the end of the transfer. Switching between cycles occurs automatically. Exiting the cycle program during the session is not recommended at all. Interrupted session will not continue. It will be restarted, which will lead to a violation of synchronization with the transmitting side. If you do not have time to select the desired symbol, just continue the program. You can enter the desired symbol later (after sending the main protocol). To do this, click "Select Symbol", select the desired symbol or group of symbols and close the window (the X sign at the bottom). After click “Send Protocol” to send an additional protocol.


IMPORTANT !!!  If there is no Internet connection, you will not be able to send the protocol to our server. To save the results, you need to write manually the numbers indicated in the sending line “Symbol Selected” and send them along with the questionnaire to our e-mail: Этот e-mail адрес защищен от спам-ботов, для его просмотра у Вас должен быть включен Javascript
