This application note is concerned with the recording of real-time physiological data, from a human subject, during fMRI, using BIOPAC’s series of MRI Smart Amplifiers:
These MRI Smart Amplifiers are designed differently than BIOPAC’s standard amplifier modules. MRI-specific amplifier modules feature internal circuitry which is designed to minimize MRI artifact (to the maximum extent possible) while still best preserving the amplifier bandwidth, phase, gain and signal to noise characteristics for the source physiological data.

Use to measure clench force in the MRI; clench force range 0-50 kgf. The lightweight, ergonomically designed transducer provides direct readings in kilograms or pounds. Use in isolation or combine with EMG recordings for in-depth studies of muscular activity. The isometric design improves experiment repeatability and accuracy. The TSD121B-MRI has an 8 meter cable terminated for connection […]View All
Discovering and understanding what motivates humans to produce better results has intrigued many researchers. Many researchers have explored the psychophysiological processes that drive our behavior. Here are some recent studies that have used BIOPAC systems to research motivation… Motivation and Pleasure Deficits Undermine the Benefits of Social Affiliation in Psychosis. Blanchard, J. J., Smith, J. […]
Eye tracking technology has come a long way and has enabled researchers to conduct mobile experiments and track participants in real world scenarios. These featured studies demonstrate some of the use cases for mobile eye tracking technology.
