Should I upgrade VU-DAMS to a newer version during the data analysis phase of a research project?

In general we recommend upgrading VU-DAMS to the newest version before starting data analysis and then completing the analyses for the project with that version.

VU-DAMS version 4.3 and higher is equipped with a highly effective dZ/dt filter (on by default). We discourage switching between having the dZ/dt filter on or off in the middle of a project. Use the same setting for all subjects in a single project. The new ICG filtering can be switched off via Edit>Settings>Expert Mode.
