Learn How To Build Stim Experiments
Watch this presentation if you are performing stimulation and would like to learn more about the techniques and options for different strategies. We will review electrical, auditory, visual, haptic, and olfactory stimulation types along with BIOPAC’s NEW thermal stimulator. BIOPAC will present a live demonstration of the different types of stimulation that can be delivered and controlled from BIOPAC’s AcqKnowledge software. 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.
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
Frazer Findlay, CEO of BIOPAC
Mickey Rowe, Ph.D, Chief Support Technician, BIOPAC
Frazer Findlay is CEO of BIOPAC and has more than 25 years’ experience in life science data acquisition and analysis. Frazer is a well-regarded expert in the physiology monitoring industry and has facilitated workshops in the U.S., Europe, and Asia. He is familiar with a variety of software, equipment, and laboratory protocols for a wide array of signals and measurements. Frazer joined BIOPAC in 1996 when he moved from the UK to Santa Barbara as Domestic Sales Manager. He became CEO in 2008 and has continued to develop and grow the business while also working with physiology measurement and biometric companies to improve the physiology monitoring industry.
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.
Cardiovascular insights are much easier to achieve with this new integration from BIOPAC and CNSystems. The CNAP™ technology is now fully incorporated in a single BIOPAC amplifier for the MP160 system where it can be fully controlled by AcqKnowledge Software—optimized for research utilizing core CNAP clinical technology.
What you will learn: • Correct equipment set up and operation • Principles of the CNAP measurement technology • How to get reproducible data • How to interface equipment and optimize multiple measurements • Automatic blood pressure analysis • Application of the “Focus Areas” feature in AcqKnowledge Software
BIOPAC provides software and hardware that allows research teams to study physiological measures related to stress. Here are a few notable studies using BIOPAC equipment for ECG, EDA, and EEG/ERP. Moms Moderating Stress Can relaxation techniques help lower stress on both mother and fetus? Using an MP36R Data Acquisition system to record ECG and EDA, this study […]
