BIOPAC 60-minutes brain hack

CBS News | 60 Minutes | Brain Hacking

APRIL 9, 2017| Why can’t we stop looking at our smartphones? And are the designers of the apps and content on them using brain science to keep us hooked? Anderson Cooper reports.

 


BIOPAC users Larry D. Rosen, Ph.D. and Nancy A. Cheever, Ph.D. from California State University, Dominguez Hills were part of the “Brain Hacking” episode of 60 Minutes. Dr. Cheever placed BIOPAC EDA recording electrodes on CBS News host Anderson Cooper and AcqKnowledge software displayed changes in his heart rate and electrodermal activity each time his out-of-reach cell phone indicated a new text message had been received.

EDA Smart Amplifier

Easily record great electrodermal activity (EDA, GSR) data. BIOPAC’s new Smart Amplifiers are designed for great data. Smart Amplifiers improve performance by amplifying the physiological signal close to the subject, which allows a high-level voltage connection to the data acquisition system and reduces noise artifact. AcqKnowledge Smart Amp setup includes guides and prompts to prevent […]
