H11 Mirror Test EDA

Derived from original work created by Pr Jean-Frans Lambert and Nicole Chantrier, Institut d’Enseignement istance / Universitaris 8- Saint-Denis France

Experimental Objectives

  1. To correlate efficiency in a task requiring movement and attention focus with the evolution of an EDR reflecting the rate of reticular formation, which indirectly indicates emotional fluctuations.
  2. To analyze the evolution of performance over repeated trials.

Tasks Performed by the Student

Sitting in front of a mirror so that he can see only his hands and the outline in the mirror, Subject will trace an outline with the unfavored hand, focusing on speed and accuracy in subsequent trials.

Synchronize Participant Video with Physiology Data

Video is a compelling addition to physiology experiments. Researchers need to understand and observe the behavior of the participant, identify problems during the experiment and get a general sense of behavior and how that behavior relates to the data. If data looks wrong or bad, video can help researchers figure out why.

Recent studies in Psychophysiology, EMG, ECG and PPG measurement utilizing BIOPAC software and hardware: Fight or Flight (Reflex Response Time) “Fight or flight” is a physiological response that occurs due to a perceived threat to survival. It can physiologically be observed through an increase in heart rate, respiratory rate, blood pressure, oxygen availability, and other mechanisms. In […]
