The Physiological Sounds Microphone (SS17L) connects to the MP3X hardware unit. The SS17L can be used with the SS19L Noninvasive Blood Pressure Cuff or as a stand-alone device.
If you use it with the Blood Pressure Cuff, you can record the Korotkoff sounds for easy determination of systolic and diastolic blood pressure (see Application Note 130 – Blood Pressure Measurement). When used on its own, it can record a variety of acoustical signals, including heart sounds and sounds associated with rubbing or grinding (e.g. Bruxism).
The acoustical transducer element is a Piezo-electric ceramic disk which is bonded to the interior of a metallic circular housing.
StimTracker Duo. StimTracker Quad MARK. SYNC. AUDIT. StimTracker Duo and Quad autonomously detect the onset of events to avoid operating system delays. The Quad adds direct TTL output, support for vocal response onset (voice key), more light sensors, and the option to install a Raspberry Pi board. Onset of Auditory Stimuli – Pass the audio via StimTracker, set […]
Science Night at Adams Elementary (Santa Barbara, CA) encourages students to discover, play, explore and learn about the importance of science and engineering in daily life. BIOPAC set up a BioNomadix Wireless Smart Center to allow students to record their heart rate. Electrodes were placed on students and leads were connected to a wireless transmitter that sent data […]
Recent developments regarding electric stimulation and mental processing have lead to interesting developments in psychophysiology and physiological sciences. The following studies look at developments in how we potentially care for and understand solutions to issues with mental health, as well as new ways to monitor electrical stimulus on participants. The ventromedial prefrontal cortex (vmPFC) is […]
