How do physiological signals change when we experience stress? How can we monitor those changes continuously so we can aim to improve our quality of life? BIOPAC presents a wide array of noninvasive and continuous measurements of stress-related physiological signals and provide in-depth guidance about best practices for recording and data analysis. We demonstrate physiological correlates of both short- and long-term load on the stress response system in the context of a public speaking task and daily activities.
Join Alex Dimov, Product Expert and Head of European Sales, as he demonstrates how researchers can use physiological data to better understand our stress response.
You Will Learn How To:
Select the right measurements and obtain good data
Choose which signals to record—including fNIRS, ECG, EDA, Respiration, Blood pressure, etc.
Recognize the importance of each signal in the context of the stress response
Analyze the respective signals with live examples
Take measures best suited for short-term vs. long-term recording
Alex Dimov (BIOPAC Systems, Inc.) has been teaching workshops on the topic of physiological data acquisition and analysis for over 15 years. While at UC Santa Barbara he was an instructor for The Advanced Training Institute for Virtual Reality in Social Psychology. He joined BIOPAC as an application specialist and now oversees European Sales for BIOPAC.
The ERS Evoked Response Smart Amplifier is an extremely low noise differential amplifier that accurately amplifies very small potentials, such as those associated with stimulus/response, startle response, ABR auditory brainstem response, somatosensory evoked response, signal-averaged recordings, and nerve conduction velocity recordings. BIOPAC’s new Smart Amplifiers are designed for great data. Smart Amplifiers improve performance by […]
Whether using specialized equipment, performing repetitive tasks, or simply going about our daily work routine, the effects of design in our environment as well as the tools we use and the way we use them can impact our health, work performance, and quality of life. Here are a few studies that have recorded and analyzed […]
