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 fEMG Electromyography Smart Amplifier is designed specifically for recording facial EMG signals and electrical activity from other small muscle groups. Use with AcqKnowledge™ software to analyze facial expressions and startle paradigms. BIOPAC’s new Smart Amplifiers are designed for great data. Smart Amplifiers improve performance by amplifying the physiological signal close to the subject, which allows a high-level […]
A System to Measure Physiological Response During Social Interaction in VR Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) have a difficult experience in responding to social cues and actions. This pilot study measured the effectiveness of Virtual Reality in creating a social environment for children, measured with a BIOPAC MP Series data acquisition system and Worldviz […]
