Human facial expressions are tied to human emotion. Feelings of fear, surprise, happiness, disgust, sadness, and anger can be understood by researchers recording Facial electromyography (fEMG) data. Activities in the zygomaticus major muscle tend to correspond with positive emotions (happiness, surprise), and the corrigator supercilii muscle tends to correspond with negative emotions (anger, fear, disgust). Researchers use this EMG data for a variety of studies involving visual, auditory and haptic stimuli, startle and response, unconscious learning, emotional response and more.

Join Frazer Findlay, CEO, BIOPAC for a webinar on recording great Facial EMG. Learn how to set up a Facial EMG study, where to place the electrodes and best practices for recording signals on the muscles tied to our emotions.

What you will learn:

  • Subject preparation
  • Electrode placement
  • How to get great data
  • Wired and wireless options
  • Live Demo of hardware and software
  • Live data recording
