Animal Physiology and Intro Human Physiology

BSL Features

The Biopac Student Lab Animal and Intro to Human Physiology Core Discipline package is part of the Biopac Student Lab (BSL) System and provides life science educators with a complete teaching program that includes a wide range of options for animal and tissue experiments. Use the power of the BSL System to conduct the most widely studied responses in physiology labs and perform analysis online or off. Lessons target the circulatory system, respiratory system, muscular function, brain function, ANS, exercise physiology, and neurophysiology. Dynamic experiments with students as subjects increase interest and retention and develop critical thinking. Basic lessons guide and prompt students—promote hypothesis-driven student inquiry with advanced options or develop user defined lessons and research projects.

The Animal and Intro to Human Physiology Core Discipline package is both comprehensive and flexible. Many lessons allow students to study animal and human species for comparative physiology programs.The system is an integrated solution that includes hardware, software, and curriculum materials that students use to record data from their own bodies, animals, and tissue preparations.

Educators can also use the Gas Analysis System for human and animal experiments for the analysis of expired O2 and CO2. The Dissolved Oxygen probe allows students to monitor the oxygen consumption of a goldfish. Perform intracellular recording and membrane transport studies.

The Biopac Student Lab System and this Core Discipline package are for inquiry-based, active learning. The BSL System enhances introductory, advanced, and graduate level programs in 4-year or 2-year programs, medical schools, and nursing programs.

continuous NIR spectroscopy (NIRS) module

fNIR Imaging Systems

fNIR Imaging Systems are stand-alone functional brain imaging solutions for continuous NIR spectroscopy (NIRS). They provide an in-lab cognitive function assessment and eliminate a great many of the drawbacks of a functional MRI. fNIR optical imaging technology measures neural activity and hemodynamic response in the prefrontal cortex. Subjects wear an fNIR sensor (IR light sources […]
