Biopotential amplifier signal validation

It is possible to validate the signals coming from any BIOPAC biopotential amplifier* by using a CBLCALC Calibration Cable. The cable connects to the front of the amplifier and the UIM100C Analog Output 0 or 1, or to a known signal source in the ±10 V range.
Create a stimulus signal using AcqKnowledge and monitor the output of the amplifier that the CBLCALC is connected to. The CBLCALC will attenuate the output signal (1/1,000), and the amplifier will amplify the signal by the gain setting.
For example, if the stimulus signal is 1 V and the gain setting is 1,000, the corresponding signal from the amplifier should be 1 V. The signal can be used for amplifier validation and signal calibration.
If the signal is significantly different from the source signal level, contact BIOPAC for further assistance.
* Note: DA100C requires CBLCAL, not CBLCALC.

Mobita Advances Prestimulus EEG Research

The Mobita 32-Channel EEG recording system was used in research examining if physiological data can be used to predict truly random events that correspond to perceptual stimuli. Baumgart, et al. from the University of California Santa Barbara utilized a quantum random number generator (qRNG) to choose from three randomized conditions: light, sound, and no stimulus. […]
