This BSL lesson demonstrates a number of important autonomic concepts and is a great introduction to EDA (a.k.a. GSR).
Students record the standard physiological measures of a polygraph and examine the effects of cognitive behavior and emotion. Students record changes in respiratory rate, heart rate and skin resistance. Each Subject answers a number of simple questions and watches a presentation to stimulate a response. It is possible to use a variety of different stimuli for the lesson.
The lesson is extremely flexible and allows the instructor to look at a variety of autonomic principles.
To become familiar with procedures for recording electrodermal activity.
To observe and record the changes in respiratory rate, heart rate, and skin resistance associated with somatic and special sensory stimuli.
To observe and record changes in respiratory rate, heart rate , and skin resistance associated with cognitive behavior and emotion.
To analyze a 3-channel polygraph recording under various experimental conditions to gain a better understanding of polygraphy and its potential for use and misuse.

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 […]
