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 25th at 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
