This is an example of a very simple 'experiment' in which letters will appear on the screen one by one to form sentences. In this experiment, adding a new character to a string is called an ''epoch''. A series of epochs that results in a complete sentence is called a ''sequence''. Subjects can press a button when they are ready for the next sentence (sequence). A flowchart of the experiment is shown below:

The easiest way to create all files that define this experiment is via the [.DocsSectionsBrainStreamEditor BrainStream editor]. You can open the editor by typing <tt>bs_editor</tt> in the Matlab command window (make sure that <tt>brainstream_mds/core</tt> is your current working directory). An experiment file (.exp) has already been created for this example experiment and is located in <tt>/brainstream_mds/examples/blocks/sentences/sentences.exp</tt>. If you open this file in the BrainStream editor, the experiment looks like this:
