Learn How To Build Stim Experiments

Watch Now

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.
