BIDS EEG data recording with pause

Dear all,

We have data collected with the EGI device. And we pause the recording when the participant has a break and continue the recording when the participant continues, which results in discontinuous recording in a single file.

I want to know if it’s acceptable to keep the discontinuous data or if I have to split it into multiple run files when converting to BIDS format? Thank you.

You can share your discontinuous data – see the RecordingType metadata in the specification, or this screenshot:

But I would clearly mention this in the README file as well.

Thanks for your response and kind reminder! It’s very useful.
