AcqKnowledge software for MP160, MP150, and MP36R research systems includes a fully-automated electrodermal activity (EDA) data scoring routine. The feature includes options for deriving phasic EDA from tonic EDA, locating skin conductance responses (SCR), and event-related EDA analysis.

Read the primer on EDA protocols and analyses to go from data acquisition to meaningful results in a few basic steps:
BIOPAC’s event-related EDA analysis works in conjunction with a Digital input to stim events feature. The Digital input to stim events function works with TTL trigger information coming from applications such as Superlab®, E-Prime®, DirectRT®, MediaLab®, Inquisit®, and Presentation®. It converts TTL data acquired on the digital channels of an MP device into stimulus events. Stimulus delivery events are defined in the graph for each low to high transition of the digital data, the indications of stimulus delivery. The digital channels are interpreted as a binary number. Each stimulus event placed into the graph has the corresponding number included with its label. The event-related EDA tool locates the stimulus events and looks for an SCR that falls within a time window after the stimulus was presented to the subject.
The following measures are extracted from the electrodermal activity data:
Stimulus Delivery Time—Time within the recording where the stimulus delivery event was located.
Skin Conductance Level (SCL)—Amplitude of the tonic EDA signal at the time the stimulus was delivered.
Response Latency—Time separating the stimulus delivery from the onset time of the corresponding SCR.
SCR Amplitude—Height of the corresponding SCR as determined by the change in the tonic EDA from the time of SCR onset to the maximum tonic EDA amplitude achieved during the SCA.
SCR Rise Time—Time taken for the tonic EDA to reach its maximum value within the SCR.
BIOPAC is introducing Biopac Student Lab Home (BSL-HOME)—a new product specifically geared towards teaching physiology labs remotely so students can still get hands-on, practical lab experience if social distancing and stay-at-home orders keep them out of the lab..
BSL-HOME will allow your students to conduct physiology labs in the safety of their own home, dorm room, or any remote location.
Distance Learning Solutions for a Hands-on Lab Experience GOLETA, California (May 21, 2020) – BIOPAC Systems announced a new solution for university level educators seeking solutions for practical lab learning in an independent setting due to stay-at-home restrictions and social distancing rules. The premier life science education system, Biopac Student Lab, has been expanded with […]
Musical Intervention as Stress Regulation There is no question that music can be beneficial in regulating mood and psychological states, but what type of musical intervention assists the greatest in stress reduction? Researchers turn to physiological signals to compare the stress reduction effects of two types of musical interventions: music listening and musical improvisation. Stressor […]
