L03 Electroencephalography I

Biopac Student Lab EEG
BSL EEG lesson I is an introduction to electroencephalographic recording techniques. The lesson demonstrates how the brain’s electrical activity varies dependent upon the task being performed. Students record EEG from the occipital lobe while performing a number of different tasks. The software will automatically filter the data to display alpha, beta, delta, and theta wave components. Students will measure and compare the EEG activity associated with various tasks.

Experimental Objectives

  1. To record EEG from an awake, resting subject with their eyes open and eyes closed.
  2. To identify and examine the alpha, beta, delta, and theta components of the EEG complex.

Tasks Performed by the Student

BSL Lessons are designed to allow at least four students to record and save data in a normal lab period (60-90 minutes). Typically, labs work most efficiently with three or more students working together at each BSL station.

With new developments happening daily, it’s easy to forget to slow down and take a breath. Breathing can be as forgettable as it is crucial; the often forgettable automatic function inspires rituals in religions around the world. Studies have shown the importance of breathing not just in a spiritual sense but also in physiological health benefits. Lung functionality […]
