New Citations | ECG Personal Identification, Cognitive Decline and Exercise, & Mechanical Impulses

ECG Identification Study, ECG100C Amplifiers, ECG signal password Personal Identification: Researchers from Yonsei University recently performed a study testing the viability of using ECG signals for individual identification, much like a password or key. Their study investigated experiments that recorded ECG after exercise and estimated the recognition potential of these signals. ECG was measured from subjects using the BIOPAC MP150 data acquisition system with ECG100C amplifiers. Read the full paper on Using ECG Signals for Individual Identification here.

Cognitive Performance and Exercise: Cognitive performance has been shown to decline after fatiguing exercise, but branched-chain amino acids have been suggested to help alleviate this. Researchers conducted a study measuring 12 taekwondo athletes performing fatiguing exercise and then supplying two different supplements to them, one being amino acids and the other a placebo. A BIOPAC MP150 system was used to measure the athletes’ EMG during the exercise. Find the full Cognitive Performance Experiment here.

Mechanical Impulses on Lower Back Pain: Myofascial pain is a common syndrome in the lower back that unfortunately has not been studied extensively. Researchers Bert Ameloot and Jeff Bagust conducted a study to quantify the effect of mechanical impulses on myofascial pain and normal muscle tissue. EMG was recorded during the procedure using BIOPAC MP150 Research System with EMG100C amplifiers. Read the full Myofascial Pain Study here.

Effort & Motivation: Using a Hand Dynamometer in the MRI and in the Lab

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
