Within the "Plugins" folder, all plugin files (shared libraries with the extension ".dll" on Windows, ".so" on Linux and ".dylib" on macOS) will be interrogated by BrainVoyager to provide a name and a short description of the provided function. The returned plugin name is shown in the Plugins menu. To see a description of the available plugins, click Description Of Plugins in the Plugins menu (see snapshot below). Note that many plugins provide their own documentation that is available via a link in the plugin description text; click this link to obtain detailled documentation about the operation of a plugin and of input parameters (if available). While the ICA routines in BrainVoyager are also implemented as plugins, they can be launched both from the Analysis and Plugins menu; note that the documentation of the ICA plugins is available in this User's Guide.
To start a plugin, simply click its name. BrainVoyager will then call the plugin code and takes back control when the plugin has finished its computations. Since BrainVoyager QX 2.1, plugins may also run interactively presenting rich GUI components to the user. In order to obtain a list of all available plugins made available through Brain Innovation, click the Plugins Web Page item in the Plugins or Help menu.
Note that besides C++ plugins, it is also possible to use (and write) Python plugins since BrainVoyger v20.
