Dr. Renata Fortuna Ramos at Rice University recently took an inventive step to try and increase student engagement within her Systems Physiology Laboratory Module (BIOE 320) course. Her paper entitled “Introduction of Active Learning Techniques Increases Student Learning in a Systems Physiology Laboratory Course” details her steps to implementing student led active learning. The class, which requires students to use Biopac Student Lab to record and analyze common physiological signals, had groups of students gain in-depth knowledge of the material that then served as experts to the other participants the following class. You can read and download the full paper here to see Dr. Ramos’ results.
The best ways to set up participants to record good data for life science research and teaching labs. – Which electrode? – Which lead? – Do I need Ground (GND)? – Best placement? – Best recording system?
We’re turning on the web cam and showing you LIVE how to best prep participants for a variety of life science signals and measurements.
Effects of MDMA on attention to positive social cues for behavioral disorders The psychostimulant drug 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA) reportedly produces distinctive feelings of empathy, closeness with others and increased social behavior. Researchers are exploring the potential of this chemical for treatment of psychiatric disorders, such as autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). This […]
