Take AcqKnowledge to the next level by adding BIOPAC Basic Scripting

Significantly reduce analysis time and improve consistency with standardized automated procedures!

Use BIOPAC Basic Scripting to customize the display and simplify the user interface. Labs repeat the same procedure many times across multiple subjects and with the use of scripting it is possible to consolidate many tasks into one automated routine that eliminates the potential for error. This provides greater standardization and consistency while improving the quality of data. Guarantee reproducibility every time with a Basic Script, no matter who is controlling the experiment.

Basic Scripting not only allows control of the display and AcqKnowledge functions, it also allows the addition of customized messages and prompts. Create a standardized procedure and document it within a Basic Script. Customized instructions popup to inform the user when they have to perform a task, or when something is taking place. Scripts are extremely useful for automating and guiding the calibration process. Add automated prompts and instructions to simplify the protocol and provide additional guidance.

Eliminate repetitive tasks and free up time for further analysis with the use of a Basic Script. AcqKnowledge is amazingly powerful and has a wide range of tools for filtering, transforming, measuring and analyzing the data, but performing the same task on every single file becomes very tedious. Use a script to eliminate repetitive and monotonous tasks that lead to errors and short cuts. Increased consistency and reproducibility will improve the quality of data generated from each experiment.

Create fully automated analysis routines and combine several complex tasks into one simple script. BIOPAC Basic Scripting is used to create all of the AcqKnowledge analysis routines, which allows the user to customize and expand them further. The AcqKnowledge analysis routines provide useful building blocks for creating further analysis routines.

Scripts are easily created within AcqKnowledge and do not require programming experience, but a familiarity with scripting will certainly help. The commands are documented in the online reference library and example scripts assist in the learning and development process. A support pack is also available that provides access to programmer support.

Optimize Event-Related EDA

Electrodermal Activity (EDA) is an objective index for understanding emotional states. Researchers measure EDA to gain insights on psychological or physiological response, leading them down the path of scientific discovery. Because EDA is so important to research, BIOPAC has created tools to optimize event-related EDA analysis. Topics include: how to identify skin conductance responses, convert stim events from E-Prime SuperLab, Presentation, Vizard, etc., into AcqKnowledge events that can used for analysis, and score skin conductance responses using the AcqKnowledge automated EDA analysis tool.
