Lung Volume Measurement

AcqKnowledge airflow and lung volume data

To record inspired and expired airflow, choose an airflow transducer appropriate to the flow rates expected from the subject and connect the transducer to the DA100C amplifier.

BIOPAC offers a wide variety of air flow transducers to cover applications ranging from high-flow exercise physiology measurements to low-flow animal studies.

Integrate the airflow associated with a maximal inspiration and expiration to obtain the Forced Vital Capacity (FVC) measurement. Determine Tidal Volume (TV) on a breath-by-breath basis by using the AcqKnowledge® rate detector.

To determine the inspiratory capacity (IC), inspiratory reserve volume (IRV) and expiratory reserve volume (ERV) in the same recording, use the Equation Generator to derive them from the FVC and TV measurements.

Eye Tracking Fundamentals

Eyes are the window to the soul and, more importantly, the brain. Psychophysiology, neuroscience, and consumer neuroscience researchers use eye tracking technology to understand emotion, behavior, subject response, decision-making, and human performance—and to help improve products and services. But not everyone knows where to start or how and why to use this important technology. A panel of eye tracking experts will present typical use cases and the latest eye tracking technology.

Watch this on-demand presentation with Q&A to learn the fundamentals of eye tracking!
