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:
to isolate the voltage monitor feedback signal from the MP150 input.

ERS: Evoked Response - Record evoked, late, and field potentials, as well as startle and nerve conduction. Powerful on- and off-line averaging features (P300), and dual stimulation ability with the MP150.
Psychophysiology - Record and analyze BP, ECG, HRV, EDA, EMG, EEG, EOG, RSP, etc. Interface to stimulus presentation programs...use automated analysis routines to easily score and analyze data.
Cardiovascular Hemodynamics - Hardware for human and animals. Measure continuous BP, ECG, stroke volume, cardiac output, PPG, etc. For animal and tissue look at acute and chronic dose-response.
In vitro Pharmacology - Record from tissue bath, isolated organ, Ussing chamber, or use field stimulation. Advanced algorithms analyze Langendorff, working heart, and isolated perfused lung data.
Exercise Physiology - Examine ventilation, oxygen uptake, carbon dioxide production, biopotentials, temp., and biomechanical signals simultaneously. Record wirelessly with BioNomadix.
EMG: Electromyography - Record surface, needle, and fine wire EMG—or wireless EMG with BioNomadix. Use real-time integration tools for immediate analysis or use automated EMG analysis routines.
The Chronos® USB-based response and stimulus device features millisecond accuracy in the areas of stimulus, response, sound output, and external device communication—this level of timing accuracy cannot be achieved using a keyboard, mouse, or onboard sound card. Chronos also gives users a solution for communicating with external devices (up to 16 digital inputs and outputs) […]
