H19 VO2 & RER

h19data.gif

This BSL PRO lesson records absolute volume of O2 and CO2 in a 60-second interval.

The lesson was updated in May 2015 for BSL 4.0.1 and in Jan 2012 to include an optional 2-point calibration; the graph template gtl and the gtl settings PDF were updated to reflect this change.

Experimental Objectives

  1. To obtain absolute VO2 and RER values for a subject at rest (optional segments include hyperventilation and recovery from exercise).
  2. To demonstrate the relationship between VO2 and RER.

Mobita Advances Prestimulus EEG Research

The Mobita 32-Channel EEG recording system was used in research examining if physiological data can be used to predict truly random events that correspond to perceptual stimuli. Baumgart, et al. from the University of California Santa Barbara utilized a quantum random number generator (qRNG) to choose from three randomized conditions: light, sound, and no stimulus. […]
