WaveWare: WaveRider Windows
Software Works with WinXP; requires XP mode to run in Windows 7
WaveWare provides a fast response
to biological signals for effective feedback. Pleasant screens
display data for easy comprehension. User-created windows process
and output biological signals. Double-clicking on any window opens
a dialog box that controls the processing and display
characteristics of that window. Musical feedback responds with a
single note, or a user-defined range of notes, instruments, and
Pre-Programmed Protocols provide an easy entry path for the beginning

be used to design advanced user-specific
Ascii creates a text file of off-line processed
data. The text file can be opened in a spreadsheet and
will display the output from each general graph present in a
configuration file. Time resolution of the text file will be
set to the finest time resolution of the collected data

Pre-programmed protocols address the goals of most beginning WaveRider users. Many users begin with these protocols, then modify and extend them for their own applications. Other protocols can be easily and quickly developed by pointing and clicking on settings within WaveWare dialog boxes.

Processed Data Modes
WaveWare processes raw biological signals and outputs meaningful data as graphs and numbers and sounds. Processed Data Modes are the recipes that process biological signals. Most brainwave processed data modes use brainwave frequency information. There are two engines for generating frequency information in WaveWare: Fast Fourier Transform(FFT)* and Digital Filter**. Each feeds different processed data modes.
FFT-Based Processed Data Modes
Dominant Frequency: Dominant frequency within a user-specified frequency passband.
Power in Passband: Amount of power in a user-specified frequency passband.
Ratio of Power in Passbands: Ratio of power between two user-specified frequency passbands.
Digital Filter Based Processed Data Modes
Digital Filter: User-selected digital filter output.
Reward/Suppress: User-selected digital filter output with threshold conditions on the selected filter and an additional filter.
Ratio of Two Filters: Ratio of two user-selected digital filter outputs.
Reward/Suppress Ratio: Ratio of two user-selected digital filters outputs with threshold conditions on the selected filters and an additional filter.
Coherence: Calculates the standard deviation of the difference between the raw output of two user-selected channels.
Other Processed Data Modes
*Fast Fourier Transform (FFT)
The FFT is a mathematical prism that splits complex signals into their constituent frequency components, just as a prism splits light into its' constituent colors. The FFT takes in a time-domain signal, and outputs an array of numbers that represent the amount of power in each frequency bin. WaveWare calculates frequency bins one hertz wide that range from one to 40 hertz. The FFT generates the data that feeds the Dominant Frequency, Power in Passband, and Ratio of Power in Passband modes. Each mode allows the definition of frequency passbands covering multiple frequency bins, as well as time averaging.
The Digital Filter is a mathematical process that outputs the amount of power in a range of frequencies as described by a set of filter co-efficients. WaveWare provides a large selection of pre-calculated filter co-efficients that cover many frequency ranges. The Digital Filter generates the data that feeds the Digital Filter, Ratio of Two Filters, Reward/Suppress, and the Reward/Suppress Ratio modes. Selectable integration of filter outputs over time is availabe in each mode.
