Highly-controlled electrical stimulation can provide a unique tool to discern sensory functions and associated physiological responses. Electrical stimulation, which can take several forms, must be tightly controlled in lab environments for the comfort and safety of participants—human and animal. In this online event, BIOPAC experts will review the fundamentals of electrical stimulation and demonstrate how to safely set up an experiment using electrical or haptic stimulation.
Join David Pollack, BIOPAC Technical Support Manager, and Tim Cook, BIOPAC Product Expert, to learn about the applications and solutions when including electrical stimulation for physiology research. The online presentation will take place February 25that 9AM PT/12PM ET.
What You Will Learn:
The differences between types of electrical stimulation
Use cases for electrical stim
How to prep subjects and connect them to stimulator safely
Best practices for safe stimulation
Live demos of electrical stimulator and haptic stimulator
David is the BIOPAC Technical Support Manager and a test engineer. He has been with BIOPAC since 2016 and has a wide understanding of BIOPAC products gained from his time in tech support, plus extensive knowledge of the BIOPAC Basic Scripting language. He graduated from University of California, Santa Barbara with a B.S. in Physics, giving him the signal processing experience necessary to support BIOPAC’s diverse user base.
About Tim Cook
Tim is the BIOPAC Sales Manager & Central Region Representative. He holds a B.B.A. from Baylor University and M.S. in Health & Human Development (with a focus on Biomechanics) from Montana State. His master’s work focused on maintaining muscle mass and bone density in Zero G environments (i.e., space flight). Prior to joining BIOPAC in 2004, he worked as an Orthopedic Research Assistant and as Business Development Coordinator & Distributor Manager for Peak Performance Technologies (now Vicon).
With Biopac Student Lab, students learn by doing and use near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) sensors to record and analyze data displaying changes in deoxygenated (Hb) and oxygenated (HbO2) hemoglobin during cognitive and neuromuscular.Learn what fNIRS can add to your physiology lab: – Principles of optical brain imaging – Lessons on prefrontal cortex imaging and muscle oxygenation – Demonstration examining Hb and HbO2 during BP occlusion – Combining fNIRS curriculum with EMG, EDA, EEG, ECG, SpO2, and Respiration to examine the relationship between brain oxygenation and other physiological signals – Use cases for both teaching and research Watch On-Demand
BIOPAC provides software and hardware that allows research teams to study dyadic interactions. Here are a few notable studies using BIOPAC equipment for dyadic research focusing on ECG and EDA data.
