The Biopac Student Lab’s Human Physiology Core Discipline package provides educators with a complete, flexible teaching system that not only allows the study of the most widely studied responses in Human Physiology, but also provides life science educators with an integrated system of hardware, software, and curriculum which increases student engagement and provides extensive instructor support—before, during, and after the lab.
Use the power of the Biopac Student Lab 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. Basic lessons guide and prompt students. Promote student inquiry with advanced options or develop user-defined lessons and research projects. Extensive customization options, including the Curriculum Management System licensed feature, allow instructors an unprecedented level of control over lesson content and presentation.
“We have been using the Biopac Student Lab system in our Human Anatomy & Physiology labs at IU South Bend for about 5 years. Students enjoy being able to analyze data that was generated from a member of their lab group. It certainly has more meaning to them than using traditional “canned” lab data.” —Mary Truex, Indiana University South Bend, Biology Department

New series of unshielded 45 cm electrode leads with thin cable; suitable for facial EMG and other areas where lighter, shorter lead cables are required. Use for female Touchproof connectors to pinch clip connectors—connect electrodes to either a C-series amplifier or an MEC. The pinch connectors are light weight and the lead cable tinsel wire […]
The new issue of Psychophysiology has a study “Quantifying rapid changes in cardiovascular state with a moving ensemble average” using MEAP for preprocessing/analysis and BIOPAC hardware and software for data collection, display, and storage. The proof of concept study demonstrates a viable method for the adoption of ICG measures across the field of psychophysiology. MEAP (moving ensemble […]
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 covering MRI, ECG, and Laser Doppler Flow measurement. fMRI & Thermal Perception: The neural mechanisms underlying thermal perception (how hot or cold we perceive the temperature to be) have not been fully […]
