The Neuroelectrics Instrument Controller (NIC) is a universal software solution that gives you full control of both Starstim and Enobio devices. NIC provides a user-friendly interface packed full of features. With NIC you can manage recordings, launch recording sessions and stream data over the network, receiver network triggers, visualize EEG features online (including raw or filtered data and spectral power scalp maps), configure and launch advanced multi-electrode stimulation protocols, visualize electric fields in cortical space and interact with the NUBE cloud system. NIC is both Windows and Mac compatible. NIC software is bundled with our devices.

Advanced stimulation interface for sophisticated multi-electrode protocols
Band filtered tRNS stimulation currents
Brain models and electric field simulation (Starstim only)
NIC includes realistic brain FEM modeling tools to simulate electric field distribution for the configured stimulation protocol, with visualization tools for time-varying stimulation (e.g., tACS or tRNS)
Simulation of the electric field in the white or grey matter interfaces
Display of the potential, electric field magnitude and electrics field components (tangential or orthogonal to cortical surface)
Single and double hemisphere views with medial cortex visualization
Electric field value visualization for chosen AAL cortical regions
Interacting with other systems
Event synchronization with 2ms jitter by means of the LSL protocol
Raw EEG and triaxial accelerometry data streaming via TCP/IP or LSL
Raw data file recording as ASCII plain text file, EDF or NEDF formats
Fully compatible with MatNIC, a set of Matlab functions that allows the user to interact with NIC and, in turn, with the device that is connected to it (Starstim or Enobio class). MatNIC provides control of the main functions of NIC, namely, (1) streaming of EEG data and (2) management of neurostimulation. This gives the user full remote, programmatic control over NE devices such as Enobio or Starstim from a Matlab environment.
In the Cloud
NIC has been designed to use with our NUBE cloud system for home use research or experiment management
