SyncBox: Must-have solution to boost data quality for concurrent EEG and fMRI recordings
Phase synchronization between the EEG equipment and the MRI scanner results in temporal stability of the EEG acquisition in relation to the switching of the gradients during the MR acquisition. This leads to significant improvement in the quality of gradient artifact correction and therefore the recorded data quality.

The SyncBox is essential to recording high quality EEG data in the MR environment and is it compatible with all major commercial MRI scanners available on the market.
