175 – Stimulus Isolator Guidelines – STMISOC

MP150 and MP100 System stimulation features provide a powerful vehicle for outputting a variety of waveforms of varying duration, coincident with the data acquisition process. Often, a stimulation voltage in excess of 20 v (p-p) is required to perform nerve or muscle stimulation. This application note will focus on using the STMISOC for either voltage or current stimulation, when higher stimulation voltages or compliance is important. This application note will identify the hardware and software setup procedures when using the STMISOC with an MP Research System.

The voltage monitor output on the STMISOC shares output stimulus ground (Vout-).  In cases where continuous output stimulus monitoring also requires isolation from MP150 input, it’s recommended to use one each of:
CBL100
INISO
HLT100C
to isolate the voltage monitor feedback signal from the MP150 input.

One Tool for Stimulus Presentation, Eye Tracking & Physiology Data

BIOPAC shows you how physiological data is seamlessly synchronized with eye tracking and stimulus presentation in one integrated solution. The talk focuses on optimizing setup, highlighting the benefits of a fully-integrated solution, and how to extract eye tracking and physiology metrics from key points, such as the cumulative average skin conductance level while a participant is focused on areas of interest.

What you will learn:
• Hardware setup
• Stimulus presentation creation
• Setting up Areas of Interest (AOI)
• Recording participant data
• Analysis and reporting
