BIOPAC research systems have recently been featured in a number of new studies. These experiments cover a wide variety of subjects, including benefits of yoga-type breathing, mapping brain abnormalities in bipolar disorder, and the effects that reward and threat interact to effect cognitive tasks. Here are some of the new papers that utilize BIOPAC products:
Measurement of Exhaled Nitric Oxide: This paper aimed to see whether using end tidal Nitric Oxide (NO) was best for measuring exhaled NO concentration. A BIOPAC TSD117 was used to measure respiratory flow while signals were sent to a BIOPAC MP system. Read the full paper here.
Body awareness and Autism Spectrum Disorder: Examined children with Autism Spectrum Disorder and their level of interoception, a person’s ability to detect and attend to internal bodily sensations. The study employed BIOPAC TSD123A and OXY100C to monitor heart rate and was recorded using AcqKnowledge software. Download the PDF here.
Threat and Reward on Memory: Studied the interacting effects that threat and reward simultaneously contribute during a cognitive task such as memory. View or download the full text now (login required).
Improved Wearable Hemodynamics Assessment: Proposed a novel method to measure ballistocardiography with a weighing scale from a wearable sensor. Read about their instrumentation here (login required).
These new studies are just some of the 20,000 scholarly references featuring BIOPAC solutions. These and others can be found over at our publications page.

Why do we so easily believe Fake News? 68% of Americans find their news through social media, and the prevalence of incomplete or deceptive news stories dubbed “fake news” has wormed its way into the fabric of modern-day media. In an effort to study how social media based news is perceived, this study measured physiological […]
Comparing Diaphragm Tissue Between Healthy and Ill Patients The human diaphragm is one of the primary muscles used in respiration, contracting and expanding to control breathing. To measure how much diaphragms move for critically ill patients (in an Intensive Care Unit) compared to diaphragms in a healthy subject, patients at “Papageorgiou” General Hospital in Thessaloniki, […]
