The lesson demonstrates the effect of learning and physiological processes on reaction times to an auditory stimulus.
Students hear two presentation schedules of clicks through a set of headphones. The Subject presses a pushbutton hand switch as quickly as possible after hearing the click.
Students can then perform a statistical analysis of the results including: group mean, variance and standard deviation.
Observe the effects of learning and physiological processes on reaction times.
Compare reaction times with two presentation schedules: fixed intervals and random intervals.
Calculate statistics of group mean, variance, and standard deviation.
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.
React to a schedule of fixed interval clicks.
React to a schedule of random clicks.
Add active learning segments designed by students or instructor to expand this lesson.
Very easy to setup and record the data.
Automatically calculates the reaction time.
Guides the student through the statistical analysis of a data set.
The software automates the setup procedure for the student. There are no knobs and dials to confuse them.
On-screen commands prompt the students throughout the lesson.
BIOPAC’s Simple Sensors warn students if they plug the wrong device or transducer into the system.
The lesson will also work with different stimuli (see Lesson 11A for visual stimulus with OUT4).
The lesson will also work as part of a group study.
BSL Instructor’s Guide provides lab tips and lesson options.
BSL Answer Guide included.

B-Alert X-Series Systems offer top-of-the-line wireless EEG. Participants are much more comfortable in B-Alert systems, ensuring the best outcome for data quality. With fast, easy setup, B-Alert X24 allows researchers to collect up to 20 channels of EEG and concurrently record physiology signals in combination with BIOPAC’s data collection systems.
• Learn new features of the B-Alert X24, including the 10/20 electrode montage system • Discover real-time subject classifications for engagement, confusion/distraction, drowsiness, workload, and stress • Integrate and synchronize other physiology signals including EDA, EMG, respiration, and temperature
These researchers studied EEG using BIOPAC equipment and software, adding to over 6,500 citations from the scientific community. We look forward to even more studies using BIOPAC for EEG in 2021! Can Computers Feel Empathy? When a person thinks of empathetic computers, most likely a fictional computer character in a movie comes to mind, like J.A.R.V.I.S. […]
