AcqKnowledge 3.8.2 and above for Windows allows you to synchronize video files with physiological data. This allows you to jump to specific points in either the video or data file, and the corresponding data or video will jump to the correct time point. If you use a visual presentation system such as SuperLab, you can jump to the event markers in the data file and view the corresponding video.
Use an OUT103 LED cable to synchronize the video camera to the MP System. OUT103 connects to one of the analog output connectors on the bottom front UIM100C or the digital connectors on the back (for an MP150 system, the UIM will have to be separated at the MP150 side of the device to allow access to the heads of the screw terminals). To use OUT103 with an MP36R unit, add a BSLCBL6 interface cable and OUT3 adapter. In the software menu, under MP1XX>Setup Stimulator (in AcqKnowledge 4.4, choose “Stimulator” in the pane on the left after selecting “MP150 > Set Up Data Acquisition…”), use the stimulator settings to turn on the LED when the MP system starts recording data. Make sure that the video camera is recording and place the LED somewhere in view of the camera so that when you start recording you will see the LED turn on. When you review the video, you will see the LED turn on and that marks the start of the data acquisition. Use the timing measurements in AcqKnowledge to synchronize the video and data files.
Long-term wireless ECG system Wireless ECG implantable transmitters for mice or rats Additional transmitters available—just move the receiver tray to record from multiple home cages The Epoch ECG Transmitter amplifies and transmits high-fidelity ECG data. Implants are small enough to be implanted into mice as young as P18. To record, simply place the animal’s cage on top of the […]
Recent studies in Psychophysiology, EMG, ECG and PPG measurement utilizing BIOPAC software and hardware: Fight or Flight (Reflex Response Time) “Fight or flight” is a physiological response that occurs due to a perceived threat to survival. It can physiologically be observed through an increase in heart rate, respiratory rate, blood pressure, oxygen availability, and other mechanisms. In […]
HRV, EMG, and EEG studies using BIOPAC hardware and software include: DON’T STRESS Humans encounter various stressful situations everyday at work, home, and school. Such stress when experienced at high degrees and/or for a long duration of time could lead to cardiovascular diseases, cognitive dysfunctions, and psychological disorders. This study examined the validity of a novel physiological measurement […]
