Bed Rest, Stress, and Neuromuscular Fatigue: New BIOPAC Citations
Home>Bed Rest, Stress, and Neuromuscular Fatigue: New BIOPAC Citations
New publications have been released featuring BIOPAC research solutions. As always, these studies and more can be found over at our publications page. These brand new publications include:
Effects of Head-Down Bed Rest on Brain Physiology and Working Memory: Researcher's used bed rest (specifically in head-down position) to simulate the effects that the prolonged weightlessness of space would have on brain functions. The study used a BIOPAC MP150 system with transducers to record HRV (Heart Rate Variability) and GSR (Galvonic Skin Response). Click here to download the whole paper.
Stress and Risk Perception: In a series of three studies, scientists investigated how imagery that evokes emotional stress influences risk perception and risk taking in real-life scenarios. One of the studies used a BIOPAC MP150 system to record EEG data. Read the whole paper here.
Neuromuscular Fatigue and Recovery Following Football: This experiment investigated football players' neuromuscular fatigue and recovery following a football game with or without heat stress. The researchers used a BIOPAC MP35 system and EMG signals. Read and download the whole paper here.
The NICO Smart Amplifier is specifically designed to measure thoracic impedance for performing noninvasive cardiac output measurements. The amplifier terminates in two connectors for impedance (Z) and its derivative (dZ), and has a 3 m cable that connects directly to an AMI100D Amplifier Input Module. Use with EL500 series disposable electrodes and LEAD131 for a four-spot […]
NIRS and CNAP—Pairing great tools for great data Cerebral hemoglobin concentration (blood mass in the brain) is frequently measured in the prefrontal cortex, and systemic arterial blood pressure is known to be a variable factor based on the hemoglobin concentration. A leg pressure cuff was used to constrict and release blood flow to create a […]
BIOPAC’s just released Introductory ECG Guide addresses fundamental to advanced concerns to optimize electrocardiography data recording and analysis. Topics include: ECG Complex; Electrical and Mechanical Sequence of a Heartbeat; Systole and Diastole; Configurations for Lead I, Lead II, Lead III, 6-lead ECG, 12-lead ECG, precordial leads; Ventricular Late Potentials (VLPs); ECG Measurement Tools; Automated Analysis Routines […]
