Differences between SCAN and CURRY 7
Automation. CURRY 7 uses macros instead of the TCL batch files in SCAN. Macros are easily recorded and easily applied across multiple data files. Macros do not have the extended functionality that is inherent with the TCL language, but they are sufficient for most tasks. There is no way to convert TCL batch files to Macros.
Event Related Band Power and Coherence. ERBP and ERCoh, as they exist in SCAN, are not [yet] included in CURRY 7.
Spatial Filtering. Spatial Filtering, as it is used in SCAN, is not available in CURRY 7. It is, however, much easier in CURRY 7 to use PCA and ICA with user-determined numbers of components to project, than it is in EDIT.
Filtering. Filtering in CURRY 7 is slightly different from filtering in EDIT, and it may not be possible to match exactly the filters between the two. They will be very close, and the differences may be negligible, but if you intend to combine data from EDIT with data from CURRY 7, it would be important to determine if there are any systematic differences.
Statistics. The non-parametric topographic ANOVAs used in CURRY 7 are significantly advanced in comparison to the t and z scores used in EDIT. There are [currently] no correlation statistics in CURRY 7.
Source Reconstruction. If you are performing source reconstruction now with Source 2 (in SCAN), or Source 5 (independent from SCAN), you will find far greater functionality in CURRY 7.
In the majority of cases, the algorithms used in SCAN are the same as those used in CURRY 7. Nevertheless, if you are planning to combine data across SCAN and CURRY 7, you should analyze a few files using both programs, with identical parameter settings, and verify that there are either no or very negligible differences. (This is a general precaution that should be applied with any major upgrade).
Most of the SCAN users who have switched to CURRY 7 - as well as we ourselves - have a difficult time going back to SCAN. The speed and the ability to see the immediate effects of the "transforms" make it very hard to go back!
