This PRO Lesson describes basic reflex and reaction time (visual stimulus) exercises and details hardware and software setup of the BSL Lessons System to record reaction time to auditory stimulus. All data collection and analysis is done via the BIOPAC MP3x data acquisition unit and the Biopac Student Lab Lessons software.
Measure reflex response of the femoral, medial popliteal, musculocutaneous and radial nerves.
Measure reaction time to visual stimulus.
Observe the effects of learning and physiological processes on reaction times of auditory stimulus.
Compare reaction times with two presentation schedules: fixed intervals and pseudo-random intervals of auditory stimulus.
Design an experiment to determine factors that affect reaction time and indicate specifically where in the nervous system sequence a factor had its effect.
Tasks Performed by the Student
perform muscle reflex exercises,
visual stimulus exercises, and
auditory stimulus exercises.
Add event markers throughout the recording.
The software automates the calibration procedure for the student. There are no knobs and dials to confuse the student.
Graph template files ensure consistent setup for subsequent Subjects or repeated trials—plus, you can easily add your own lesson plan to the onscreen journal.
The lesson will also work as part of a group study.

How do physiological signals change when we experience stress? How can we monitor those changes continuously so we can aim to improve our quality of life? BIOPAC will present a wide array of noninvasive and continuous measurements of stress-related physiological signals and provide in-depth guidance about best practices for recording and data analysis.
You Will Learn How To: • Select the right measurements and obtain good data • Choose which signals to record-including fNIRS, ECG, EDA, Respiration, Blood pressure, etc. • Recognize the importance of each signal in the context of the stress response • Analyze the respective signals with live examples • Take measures best suited for short-term vs. long-term recording
BIOPAC offers complete systems for life science research and education—human, animal, or in vivo studies, as well as powerful software and automated analysis including industry-standard data acquisition amplifiers, transducers & electrodes. BIOPAC can be used inside or outside the lab to measure physiology anytime, anyplace.
