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.

Programmable Stimulation System for E-Prime

The STMEPM Programmable Stimulation System for E-Prime allows a user to interface the STMISOLA Stimulator with E-Prime to control the stimulus frequency and stimulus intensity for real-time stimulus delivery changes based on a subject’s responses. It is also possible to hardcode the stimulus intensity levels in the presentation so that predefined stimulus levels are delivered […]
