Biopac Student Lab Biofeedback

This lesson demonstrates the principles of biofeedback training for relaxation purposes. The student will record and view ECG, heart rate, and electrodermal activity (EDA). Subjects control the position of a vertical bar graph by influencing their heart rate and EDA. As heart rate increases, the bar moves up; if the heart beats slower, the bar moves down. A separate bar moves up as EDA increases and down as EDA decreases.

Experimental Objectives

  1. Introduce the concept of biofeedback training for relaxation.

  2. Measure levels of arousal via heart rate and electrodermal activity.

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.

Combine the New, Wireless 20 Channel EEG System with Multiple Physiology Signals

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 a super 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
