BSL Home guides students to record great life science data from their own bodies— heart signals (ECG), brain waves (EEG), muscle activity (EMG), eye movement (EOG), and Respiration.
Student-friendly, media-rich software provides prompts, screen shots, and lesson videos to demonstrate calibration, setup & cable management, recording procedures, and data comparison.
Tutorial-style guided lessons and active learning segments for student-designed experiments.
L01 Electromyography (EMG) I — Standard & Integrated EMG
Students investigate the properties of skeletal muscle by measuring maximum clench strength.
L02 Electromyography (EMG) II — Motor Unit Recruitment & Fatigue
Students lift weights to examine motor unit recruitment and skeletal muscle fatigue.
L03 Electroencephalography (EEG) I —Relaxation & Brain Rhythms
Introduces students to electroencephalography by recording from the occipital lobe.
L04 Electroencephalography (EEG) II — Alpha Rhythms in the Occipital Lobe
Students discover how the brain constantly receives and integrates sensory input.
L05 Electrocardiography (ECG) I — Components of the ECG
Introduces students to electrocardiography and the recording of the heart’s electrical signals. Bipolar Leads, Einthoven’s Law, Mean Electrical Axis on the Frontal Plane. Explains Einthoven’s triangle while students perform tasks designed to change the rhythm of the heart.
L08 Respiratory Cycle I — Respiratory Rates, Relative Depths of Breathing, Regulation of Ventilation
Students observe and record EMGs from thoracic respiratory skeletal muscle during eupnea and voluntary apnea.
L10 Electrooculogram (EOG) I — Eye Movement; Saccades & Fixation
Students record horizontal eye movements during real and simulated tracking of a pendulum.
L14 Biofeedback —Relaxation & Arousal
Explores the concept of biofeedback training and its effect on autonomic control of heart rate.
L15 Aerobic Exercise Physiology — Cardiovascular & Respiratory Adjustments During and After Exercise
Students record ECG and HR to see how the electrical activity of the heart and heart rate change.

The NICO Smart Amplifier is specifically designed to measure thoracic impedance for performing noninvasive cardiac output measurements. The amplifier terminates in two connectors for impedance (Z) and its derivative (dZ), and has a 3 m cable that connects directly to an AMI100D Amplifier Input Module. Use with EL526 strip electrodes and CBL246 adapter or with EL500 […]View All
Exercise physiology is the study of the body’s response to physical activity. Research in exercise physiology allows for insights in health and for a better understanding of the functions of the body at work. Here are some recent studies in exercise physiology that utilized BIOPAC tools for their research… Effect of exercise on electrocardiographic parameters […]
