Respiration is one of the major signals tracked in physiological research. Learning how to record good respiration data, and how to select the right tool and technique for your research, is critical to a successful experiment.
Join Alex Dimov from BIOPAC to learn how to record great respiration data. Learn about the various options such as a classic resistance belt, inductance belts, thermistors, bioimpedance, ECG-derived respiration, and airflow. Alex demonstrates how to set up a respiration experiment and show you how to identify good and bad data. He also discusses basic analysis techniques to get you started.
What You Will Learn:
How to select the right technique for application
How to optimize the devices for recording quality data
How to identify good and bad data
How to prepare data for analysis and some basic analysis techniques
Alex Dimov (BIOPAC Systems, Inc.) has been teaching workshops on the topic of physiological data acquisition and analysis for nearly 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.
Projection-based virtual reality is a powerful immersive medium that makes it easy to experience VR applications without the need for heavy headgear or cables. With unobtrusive wireless sensing technology, researchers can easily measure their physiological and behavioral responses.
You Will Learn To: • Understand key principles of combing virtual reality + physiological data recording • Mark events from the simulation into the physiological record • Access physiological data in the VR environment for biofeedback and control • Set up a projection-based virtual reality simulation room • Analyze the resulting data
BIOPAC provides software and hardware that allows research teams to conduct studies in virtual reality. Here are a few notable studies using both virtual reality systems and BIOPAC equipment researching to see how virtual reality could impact emotions, health, and medicine. Feelings on 2D vs. 3D Previous studies have suggested that virtual reality (VR) can […]
