Brand new publications have been released featuring BIOPAC solutions. These new papers include:
Maximal Effort Cycling Test: Researchers evaluated EMG frequency changes during a three-minute maximal effort cycling test session and examined whether mean or median frequency was better for evaluation. Raw EMG signals were recorded with an MP150 system and analyzed using here.
Swim Performance and Perceived Stress: This study examined effects of training load on psychological and performance variables for collegiate female athletes across a season. A BIOPAC MP36R was used to record tension and compression from the starting platform of the first lane at the pool. Read the entire study here.
Health Benefits from Stability in Social Power: This paper studied the influence that the stability of social power has on cardiovascular responses. Impedance-cardiographic and electrocardiographic signals were recorded using a BIOPAC MP150 system using ECG100C and NICO100C amplifiers. Download the study here.

Many studies use hand dynamometry to objectively quantify exerted effort during experiments most commonly related to the study of motivation.
We’ll focus on this topic and go over everything you need to know to record dynamometry data in the MRI or in the lab. Topics include
– Calibrating for maximum voluntary contraction (MVC)
– Real-time access to the dynamometer signal by third-party applications
– How researchers have used this equipment
– Creating a visual task that gives feedback on exerted effort as well as rewards to the participant

Discovering and understanding what motivates humans to produce better results has intrigued many researchers. Many researchers have explored the psychophysiological processes that drive our behavior. Here are some recent studies that have used BIOPAC systems to research motivation… Motivation and Pleasure Deficits Undermine the Benefits of Social Affiliation in Psychosis. Blanchard, J. J., Smith, J. […]
Eye tracking technology has come a long way and has enabled researchers to conduct mobile experiments and track participants in real world scenarios. These featured studies demonstrate some of the use cases for mobile eye tracking technology. Here are some recent studies that have used BIOPAC systems for eye tracking research… Drivers’ gaze patterns when resuming […]Read All
