Date Tuesday, February 27, 2018
Understanding the basic principles of physiological data collection is critical to both educators and researchers who teach and conduct physiology experiments. Configuring your equipment and knowing the fundamentals of data collection will help you avoid making costly missteps and even refine your current experiment. Frazer Findlay, CEO of BIOPAC, recognizes common mistakes with physiology recording and shares his secrets for collecting great data. Utilizing over 20 years of experience in the life sciences monitoring industry, Frazer outlines important guidelines by conducting a live demo with real-world examples and live data collection.

Electrodermal Activity (EDA) is an objective index for understanding emotional states. Researchers measure EDA to gain insights on psychological or physiological response, leading them down the path of scientific discovery. Because EDA is so important to research, BIOPAC has created tools to optimize event-related EDA analysis. Topics include: how to identify skin conductance responses, convert stim events from E-Prime SuperLab, Presentation, Vizard, etc., into AcqKnowledge events that can used for analysis, and score skin conductance responses using the AcqKnowledge automated EDA analysis tool.
NIRS and CNAP—Pairing great tools for great data Cerebral hemoglobin concentration (blood mass in the brain) is frequently measured in the prefrontal cortex, and systemic arterial blood pressure is known to be a variable factor based on the hemoglobin concentration. A leg pressure cuff was used to constrict and release blood flow to create a […]
