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

Frazer Findlay is CEO of BIOPAC and has more than 20 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.
Long-term wireless ECG system Wireless ECG implantable transmitters for mice or rats Additional transmitters available—just move the receiver tray to record from multiple home cages The Epoch ECG Transmitter amplifies and transmits high-fidelity ECG data. Implants are small enough to be implanted into mice as young as P18. To record, simply place the animal’s cage on top of the […]
Recent studies in Psychophysiology, EMG, ECG and PPG measurement utilizing BIOPAC software and hardware: Fight or Flight (Reflex Response Time) “Fight or flight” is a physiological response that occurs due to a perceived threat to survival. It can physiologically be observed through an increase in heart rate, respiratory rate, blood pressure, oxygen availability, and other mechanisms. In […]
HRV, EMG, and EEG studies using BIOPAC hardware and software include: DON’T STRESS Humans encounter various stressful situations everyday at work, home, and school. Such stress when experienced at high degrees and/or for a long duration of time could lead to cardiovascular diseases, cognitive dysfunctions, and psychological disorders. This study examined the validity of a novel physiological measurement […]
