Coulbourn has enhanced the industry standard software for writing behavioral experiment protocols. Now, it is even easier to design the most complex experiments by simple point-and-click through Graphic State® 4 software.

Designed to allow researchers to create interactive experiment-control protocols for behavioral experiments using state logic, Graphic State® 4 offers a new elegance with unparalleled power and incredible simplicity respect to software requesting users with programming knowledge.

With a simple “point and click” the user selects options and represents the structure of each state graphically. Inherently user-friendly, the screen contains all the options and acts as a universal prompt. Any questions can be resolved by activating our context sensitive help screens.

Graphic State® 4 structures the experiment as a series of states through which the experiment moves, with each state specifying a stimulus configuration in the test environment, a set of time and/or response requirements which cause the program to exit that state and progress to the next. The software indicates when each state and the entire protocol are logically complete so that the session cannot end up “hanging”, unable to progress to a Finish state.

The software offers a complete data analysis structure with graphic and digital analysis in which counts, rate, latencies and durations can be created. A data file log in text format is included so the user can specify events to be highlighted and save for analyses in other programs.

The USB Interface replaces the PCI interface for Habitest that can be interfaced to the computer through USB Port. One USB Interface is required per computer. The U90-11H USB interface is needed when Graphi State is used with the Habitest system and the U90-11T is needed for the TruScan system.
