PhysIO Toolbox to remove image artifact associated with RSP and ECG
The general purpose of the PhysIO Toolbox is the model-based physiological noise correction of fMRI data using peripheral measures of respiration and cardiac pulsation. The software accepts time-series data generated with BIOPAC MRI amplifiers (ECG, RSP) and then uses this data to correct fMRI images.

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. […]
BIOPAC provides software and hardware that allow for research teams to record and analyze respiration activity in physiological experimentation. Here are a few notable studies in monitoring respiration and cardiovascular activity. The coupling between peripheral microcirculation and slow breathing: The purpose of this study was to investigate the coupling of breathing movements and microcirculatory blood […]
