The manipulation model describes temporal manipulations performed in a dataset. Manipulations are ways to perturb the natural brain dynamics. The types of manipulations that are currently supported by BrainSTEM are listed further down the page. A Manipulation is described by the fields in the next section.

Type detailsThere are also a number of type specific fields. See options below

Types of manipulations

These are the available Type options for manipulations:

  • Electromagnetic field stimulation
  • Electrical stimulation
  • Liquid perturbation
  • Micro perfusion
  • Optogenetical stimulation
  • Pharmacological inhalation
  • Pharmacological injection
  • Pharmacological superfusion

Manipulation API access

The API allows for programmable access to manipulations. Learn more about the manipulations’ fields and data structure on the Manipulation API page.
