-If this is a new subject, then you may need to add them to the SID database, you can do this by editing the database:+If this is a new subject, add them using mglSetSID('​add'​) and filling out the dialog. Note that when using the mglSetSID('​edit'​) functionality,​ you may have problems because old subjects were added without all fields that are currently required being filled out. Thus, when you enter your new subject'​s information,​ the system will complain that you haven'​t told it about older subject'​s information. Instead of using '​edit',​ simply type: 
 + 
 +  mglSetSID('​add'​);​

 +Enter the lab password when prompted and fill out the dialog with a new SID, and all your subject and demographic information.

 +The following information is outdated and is retained for historical reference and because the mglSetSID('​edit'​) functionality may be helpful if we ever want to correct and/or sanitize the old database (possibly by filling in required fields with a flag for lost/​unknown information for older subjects).
