BIOPAC will present a live demonstration of the different types of stimulation that can be delivered and controlled from BIOPAC’s AcqKnowledge software. We will review electrical, auditory, visual, haptic, and olfactory stimulation types along with BIOPAC’s NEW thermal stimulator. This live demonstration showing setup and recording will provide a detailed overview of the stimulator software in AcqKnowledge. Subject preparation for several stimulation techniques will be discussed and shown during the demo. Plus, we’ll present how third-party stimulators interact with AcqKnowledge software.
Attend this presentation if you are performing stimulation and would like to learn more about the techniques and options for different strategies.
What you will learn
Stim-response theory and best practices
Explanation of Stim options
How to collect meaningful data and how to mark events
How to create stimulus paradigms within AcqKnowledge

Mickey Rowe, Ph.D., is BIOPAC’s lead Support Technician. He is in the trenches with researchers and educators every day, helping them configure their experiments and setup equipment. Mickey earned his bachelor’s degree at Arizona State University where he majored in Biomedical Engineering. From there he went on to the University of Pennsylvania to obtain a Ph.D. in Neuroscience. After postdoctoral work at the Center for the Integrative Study of Animal Behavior at Indiana University, Bloomington and later the Department of Psychology at UC Santa Barbara, Mickey worked as a research associate in the Neuroscience Research Institute at UC Santa Barbara.
The NIBP-A-MRI CareTaker4 system measures relative central arterial pressure to provide continuous, noninvasive “Beat-by-Beat” Blood Pressure from at rest humans (≥ 15 kg) in the MRI; measures include Diastolic, Systolic, Mean Arterial Pressure.; heart rate (HR) data is available. The system uses the scientific method of Pulse Decomposition Analysis (“PDA”). Key features Continuous, noninvasive monitoring […]
BIOPAC’s just released Introductory ECG Guide addresses fundamental to advanced concerns to optimize electrocardiography data recording and analysis. Topics include: ECG Complex; Electrical and Mechanical Sequence of a Heartbeat; Systole and Diastole; Configurations for Lead I, Lead II, Lead III, 6-lead ECG, 12-lead ECG, precordial leads; Ventricular Late Potentials (VLPs); ECG Measurement Tools; Automated Analysis Routines […]
Recent Studies using BIOPACs MP-Series (MP160, MP150) data recorders, ECG Amplifiers, and BioNomadix Wireless recorders: Singing style to infants Mothers around the world sing to infants, presumably to regulate their mood and arousal. Lullabies and playsongs differ stylistically and have distinctive goals. Mothers sing lullabies to soothe and calm infants, and playsongs to engage and […]
