Abstract : A Continuous Electroencephalographic and Physiologic Monitoring System was configured using a VAX11/750 control unit. The system combines three important and interrelated functions: monitoring the health and safety of human research subjects during long-term studies; scheduling and recording discrete events such as meal times, bedtimes, and performance test times; and collecting physiologic data from th subject.
