BIOPAC on Good Morning America | Anxiety and Excessive Cell Phone Use

BIOPAC GSR/EDA data on ABC

ABC News | Good Morning America | Excessive Cell Phone Use

JULY 31, 2017 | Excessive cell phone use may cause anxiety, experts warn


BIOPAC user Nancy A. Cheever, Ph.D. from California State University, Dominguez Hills was featured on Good Morning America. Her study investigated whether spending too much time on your phone may be causing people to feel stress and anxiety. Dr. Cheever hooked up TJ Holmes and two teenage participants to an MP System with GSR and heart rate amplifiers to measure ECG and Electrodermal Activity. The subjects were then interviewed about the physiological aspects of Smartphone addiction.

This is not the only study that Nancy Cheever’s lab has gotten attention for. She was previously featured on 60 Minutes with Anderson Cooper for her study on how smart phone apps keep us hooked to our phones.

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 […]
