EEG 1 introduces electroencephalographic recording techniques. Students record EEG from the occipital lobe while performing a number of different tasks to demonstrate how the brains electrical activity varies depending on the task. The software filters the raw EEG signal to separate and display alpha, beta, delta, and theta rhythms.
To record an EEG from an awake, resting subject with eyes open and eyes closed.
To identify and examine alpha, beta, delta, and theta components of the EEG complex
To compare differences between male and female students.
Tasks Performed by the Student
Record EEG from the occipital lobe.
Record EEG from a relaxed subject with their eyes closed, eyes open, and eyes closed again.
Alpha, beta, delta and theta wave components are automatically filtered and displayed.
View the different EEG wave components.
Overlap the EEG wave components for a better view of the data.

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. […]
BIOPAC provides software and hardware that allow for research teams to record and analyze respiration activity in physiological experimentation. Here are a few notable studies in monitoring respiration and cardiovascular activity. The coupling between peripheral microcirculation and slow breathing: The purpose of this study was to investigate the coupling of breathing movements and microcirculatory blood […]
