New Citations | Brain Studies Involving fNIRS, BDNF, and fMRI

BIOPAC provides software and hardware that allows research teams to study the brain for cognitive experimentation. Here are a few notable studies using BIOPAC equipment for fNIRS, fMRI, and Brain Studies research.

The Mystery of our Inherent Body ClockChris Parmiter - Unsplash

Recording time is as easy as looking at your watch or pulling out your phone, but humans have always had an innate ability to figure out how long something takes. This inherent internal body clock was key to this study as it focused on the brain dynamics involved in the modulation of motor tempo. By harnessing fNIRS technology and BioNomadix wireless amplifiers, this study was able to see how subjects and their brains differed when performing motor tasks at slower or faster paces.

How BDNF and Aerobic Exercise Could Help Fight Diabetes

Diabetic Cardiovascular Autonomic Neuropathy (CAN) is one of the most overlooked complications of diabetes. Using a BIOPAC Data Acquisition System, this study aimed to prove that aerobic exercise and Brain-derived Neurotrophic Factor (BDNF) could be used as treatment for CAN.

fMRI Helps Examine Unpredictable Stimuli Processing

Unpredictable stimuli influence behavior across species, but do they affect the same regions of the brain? Could fMRI show overlap between brain regions relating to unpredictable threats or rewards? With a stimulator module, the researchers looked to uncover any correlation to responses of both unpredictable threats and rewards in the brain. Read the full study: Shared and unique neural circuitry underlying temporally unpredictable threat and reward processing (Milena Radoman, Lynne Lieberman, Jagan Jimmy, Stephanie M Gorka)
