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
  • Advanced options

Speakers

  • Frazer Findlay, CEO of BIOPAC
  • Mickey Rowe, Ph.D, Chief Support Technician, BIOPAC

BioNomadix Wireless 2 Ch Goniometry Amplifier

BioNomadix 2CH Wireless Goniometry Amplifier

The BioNomadix two channel wireless goniometry amplifier is a dual output device that provide simultaneous measurements around two orthogonal rotational axes (e.g., wrist flexion/extension and radial/ulnar deviations). These units interface with the MP160 (or older MP150) data acquisition and analysis platform and AcqKnowledge software, allowing advanced analysis for multiple applications and supporting acquisition of a broad range of signals and measurements. BN-GONIO can support any […]
