Biology

The Biopac Student Lab’s Biology Core Discipline package provides educators with an integrated, flexible teaching system that not only allows the study of the most widely studied responses in Biology, but also an integrated system of hardware, software, and curriculum which increases student engagement and provides extensive instructor support–before, during, and after the lab. The BSL System can record signals from cells, organs, insects, animals and human subjects to facilitate a spectrum of application opportunities. The system has new options for pH, dissolved oxygen and calorimetry (connections and software features). A wide range of lessons covers the cardiovascular, immune, respiratory, pulmonary, metabolic, digestive and nervous systems. User-friendly recording options and analysis tools promote student inquiry and active learning. Employ new software options to develop new lessons specifically tailored to unique course material.

The Biology Core Discipline package’s Cardiovascular Hemodynamics Lessons cover ECG (1-12 lead) and allow students to isolate components of the ECG complex and use the averaging features in the software for further ECG analysis. Use the electronic stethoscope to examine heart sounds and then overlap the data to correlate the sounds with the
mechanical and electrical events of the cardiac cycle. Record arterial blood pressure and record systolic, diastolic, mean, dP/dt max and min, and use the noninvasive Cardiac Output Sensor to record stroke volume and cardiac output.

The Respiratory & Pulmonary Function lessons allow students to record the pattern of breathing as well as perform comprehensive cardiopulmonary tests. Gas Analysis
Students can use the new gas analysis system to monitor expired CO2 and O2 levels for detailed metabolic studies with human and animal subjects.

Features (PDF)

The Biology Core Discipline package is ideal for inquiry-based, active learning in 2-yr. and 4-yr. programs, medical schools, and nursing programs. Powerful setup and analysis tools also make the Biopac Student Lab package ideal for graduate studies and personal research.

Eye Tracking Fundamentals

Eyes are the window to the soul and, more importantly, the brain. Psychophysiology, neuroscience, and consumer neuroscience researchers use eye tracking technology to understand emotion, behavior, subject response, decision-making, and human performance—and to help improve products and services. But not everyone knows where to start or how and why to use this important technology. A panel of eye tracking experts will present typical use cases and the latest eye tracking technology.

Join this online presentation with Q&A to learn the fundamentals of eye tracking!
