fNIRs Education Systems are stand-alone functional imaging solutions for continuous NIR spectroscopy. The low-cost fNIRS Education System is a complete solution for educators including curriculum materials, hardware, and software to record, process, and analyze up to 6 optodes of NIRS data. Curriculum materials covering 4 lessons with step-by-step guides for 9 student-friendly exercises measuring changes in deoxygenated (Hb) and oxygenated (HbO2) hemoglobin during cognitive and neuromuscular tasks are included. Instructors can combine with existing Biopac Student Lab systems or use as a stand-alone imaging solution in their lab or classroom. The systems can easily integrate with most commercial physiology teaching systems.
NIRS brings real-time imaging to the lab without the drawbacks of the functional MRI or other imaging techniques that are expensive, time-consuming, and complex. In contrast, NIRS technology is affordable, easy to use, and requires fewer safety considerations. Explore the hemodynamic relationship between the brain and muscle systems with a real-time imaging system that fits in your backpack and has diverse capabilities for teaching and research.
Join us to learn what NIRS can bring to your physiology lab.
You will learn about:
Principles of optical brain imaging and the theory of operation
Lessons on prefrontal cortex imaging and muscle oxygenation to prove complex cardiovascular and neuromuscular relationships
Experiments examining Hb and HbO2 with a demonstration of a blood pressure occlusion task
Augmenting fNIRS curriculum with EMG, EDA, EEG, ECG, SpO2, and Respiration to present the relationship between brain oxygenation and other physiological signals
Use cases for both teaching and research
Curriculum that includes Oxygenation Changes, Dual Tasks, and much more

fNIRS Imaging Systems are stand-alone functional brain imaging solutions for continuous NIR spectroscopy (NIRS). They provide an in-lab cognitive function assessment and eliminate a great many of the drawbacks of a functional MRI. fNIRS optical imaging technology measures neural activity and hemodynamic response in the prefrontal cortex. Subjects wear an fNIR sensor (IR light sources […]
BIOPAC provides software and hardware that allows research teams to study large group interactions. Here are a few notable studies using BIOPAC equipment for large group research focusing on participation and EDA data. Participation is Key Active participation in education is always thought to lead to better results. Using two groups of six students, TA’s led labs using […]
