Sport Science brings in former UFC Lightweight champion B.J. Penn to demonstrate the impact of the rear-naked choke on host John Brenkus and uses the fNIR System from BIOPAC to measure oxygen supply to the frontal cortex during the exercise; EEG and heart rate were also recorded. John’s heart rate drops from 124 to 80, respiration drops 55%, and electrical activity in the brain reduces by 65% during the 9-second choke. John’s body reboots after the choke out to normal levels in just 3 seconds. Click here to watch Sport Science: BJ Penn.
High-performance mobile fNIR Imaging Systems are stand-alone functional brain imaging solutions for continuous NIR spectroscopy (NIRS). These top of the line systems provide cognitive function assessment and eliminate a great many of the drawbacks of a functional MRI. Mobile subjects are comfortable and can respond naturally in real-world situations to take a test or perform mobile […]
BIOPAC provides software and hardware that allows research teams to run autonomic function tests while collecting physiological data. Here are a few studies focusing on BIOPAC’s ability to record physiological signals during autonomic function testing. The Internet, Sleep, and Heart Rate Does internet usage lead to poorer sleep? Using a BIOPAC Data Acquisition System to measure cardiovascular […]
