This page describes the infobox template used to annotate all entries listed under the Brain Stimulation category. You can see an example of this type of infobox to the right.

This page is intended for copying and pasting the Category:Brain Stimulation template of an Infobox. For general help about Infoboxes and for other than the Brain Stimulation category templates, head to the Infobox template section in the Entry template article.

The underlying template is located at Template:BrainStimulation.

Usage

To start using the infobox template, copy and paste the code below to the top of the page you are creating or editing.

Then you need to replace the ### with relevant information. If the data are not available, remove the ### and leave the space blank.

The infobox uses three specialised properties that aim to describe the salient features of Brain Stimulation devices. The max_output describes the maximum possible output a stimulator may give out during a normal use session. This property takes two values, milliamperes [mA] if the device uses Transcranial direct-current stimulation, or tesla [T] if the device uses Transcranial magnetic stimulation.

The max_session_duration describes how long a maximum one session of normal use can last. This values it in seconds [s].

scalp_location describes the position of electrodes of the device on the user's scalp. This uses values based on a redefined version of the 10-20_system for EEG electrodes location.[1] Details are explained on the Brain Stimulation synopsis page.

Read the respective Property pages to find more information about these properties.

You may have noticed that some of the fields are numbered (i.e. controls1= and sensors1=). This is to fit more than one value for the same field, if the device in question has more than one control option, for example. If you wish to display more control options, take the already existing value controls1= and simply increase the number so it looks like this controls2=, controls3=, and so on. Try not to skip any numbers. The maximum number is 10.

Some fields allow you to assign references to them. Write the full reference text inside the relevant ..._commentary= field, including the <ref></ref> tags. Here is an example taken from Google Cardboard infobox: announced_commentary=<ref name="time14">LUCKERSON, Victor. Google Just Released Its Most Low-Tech Product Ever. TIME [online]. 2014, 25 June. Available online at: http://time.com/2923531/google-cardboard-app/ (Retrieved 21 October 2015))</ref>|

medical_prescription indicates whether the device in question is accessible through a medical prescription or is available simply over the counter. This variable is boolean an as such can take only two values: true/false or, in this case, yes/no.
