B-Alert in AcqKnowledge 4.4.1 and earlier: Brain State Gauge Surface and Heat Maps are unresponsive during acquisition; colors remain a uniform green (Surface Map) and yellow (Heat Map).
This is most likely because the “No output into ABM format” option is selected in the B-Alert Data Acquisition Settings. In order for Surface and Heat Map output to be recorded, a valid ABM data file output location must be defined.
Note that this issue is common only to AcqKnowledge versions 4.4.1 and earlier. In AcqKnowledge versions 4.4.2 and higher, Heat and Surface Map output will function properly with the “No output” option selected.
Use the following steps to ensure proper Surface and Heat Map operation:
Choose B-Alert menu > Set Up Data Acquisition > Length/Rate.
Click the “Choose ABM data file location” button.
Select the “Output data into ABM data file at:” option, assign a valid file path, and click OK.
Rerun the B-Alert acquisition. The Surface and Heat Map gauges should display the expected color output.
Cardiovascular insights are much easier to achieve with this new integration from BIOPAC and CNSystems. The CNAP™ technology is now fully incorporated in a single BIOPAC amplifier for the MP160 system where it can be fully controlled by AcqKnowledge Software—optimized for research utilizing core CNAP clinical technology.
What you will learn: • Correct equipment set up and operation • Principles of the CNAP measurement technology • How to get reproducible data • How to interface equipment and optimize multiple measurements • Automatic blood pressure analysis • Application of the “Focus Areas” feature in AcqKnowledge Software
BIOPAC provides software and hardware that allows research teams to study physiological measures related to stress. Here are a few notable studies using BIOPAC equipment for ECG, EDA, and EEG/ERP.
