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.
Easily record great ECG data and derived signals for heart rate, RR interval, and R-wave amplitude. 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 voltage connection to the data acquisition system and reduces noise artifact.

Recent Studies using BIOPACs MP-Series (MP160, MP150) data recorders, ECG Amplifiers, and BioNomadix Wireless recorders: Singing style to infants Mothers around the world sing to infants, presumably to regulate their mood and arousal. Lullabies and playsongs differ stylistically and have distinctive goals. Mothers sing lullabies to soothe and calm infants, and playsongs to engage and […]
Alex Dimov, BIOPAC Sales Executive, was interviewed at the Neuromarketing World Forum by Inside Marketing to discuss how virtual reality can improve marketing research. Alex explains how VR can be used to present virtual iterations of a product to save time and money, and notes that measuring physiological responses adds lots of information for product and messaging […]
