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

Video is a compelling addition to physiology experiments. Researchers need to understand and observe the behavior of the participant, identify problems during the experiment and get a general sense of behavior and how that behavior relates to the data. If data looks wrong or bad, video can help researchers figure out why.
Recent studies in Psychophysiology, EMG, ECG and PPG measurement utilizing BIOPAC software and hardware: Fight or Flight (Reflex Response Time) “Fight or flight” is a physiological response that occurs due to a perceived threat to survival. It can physiologically be observed through an increase in heart rate, respiratory rate, blood pressure, oxygen availability, and other mechanisms. In […]
HRV, EMG, and EEG studies using BIOPAC hardware and software include: DON’T STRESS Humans encounter various stressful situations everyday at work, home, and school. Such stress when experienced at high degrees and/or for a long duration of time could lead to cardiovascular diseases, cognitive dysfunctions, and psychological disorders. This study examined the validity of a novel physiological measurement […]
