BIOPAC Systems are intended to be modular, so there is a lot of freedom to connect different components together in different ways. In general, any way modules can fit together is ok. The restrictions, such as BioNomadix modules must go between the UIM100C and MP150, are enforced by the connections themselves. In that case, for instance, it is not possible to connect a BioNomadix receiver farther away from the MP150 than the UIM100C because the right side of the UIM100C and all modules that can be attached there has a slot for a banana plug where the BioNomadix modules have a D-SUB-25 connector. Aside from such issues, the order of attachment of different components is immaterial.
Electrodermal Activity (EDA) is an objective index for understanding emotional states. Researchers measure EDA to gain insights on psychological or physiological response, leading them down the path of scientific discovery. Because EDA is so important to research, BIOPAC has created tools to optimize event-related EDA analysis. Topics include: how to identify skin conductance responses, convert stim events from E-Prime SuperLab, Presentation, Vizard, etc., into AcqKnowledge events that can used for analysis, and score skin conductance responses using the AcqKnowledge automated EDA analysis tool.
NIRS and CNAP—Pairing great tools for great data Cerebral hemoglobin concentration (blood mass in the brain) is frequently measured in the prefrontal cortex, and systemic arterial blood pressure is known to be a variable factor based on the hemoglobin concentration. A leg pressure cuff was used to constrict and release blood flow to create a […]
BIOPAC’s just released Introductory ECG Guide addresses fundamental to advanced concerns to optimize electrocardiography data recording and analysis. Topics include: ECG Complex; Electrical and Mechanical Sequence of a Heartbeat; Systole and Diastole; Configurations for Lead I, Lead II, Lead III, 6-lead ECG, 12-lead ECG, precordial leads; Ventricular Late Potentials (VLPs); ECG Measurement Tools; Automated Analysis Routines […]
