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.

PhysIO Toolox is available as part of the TAPAS software collection of the TNU. TAPAS is a collection of algorithms and software tools that are developed by the Translational Neuromodeling Unit (TNU) at Zurich to support translational neuroscience, particularly concerning the application of neuroimaging and computational modeling to research questions in psychiatry and neurology.
fNIR Imaging Systems are stand-alone functional brain imaging solutions for continuous NIR spectroscopy (NIRS). They provide an in-lab cognitive function assessment and eliminate a great many of the drawbacks of a functional MRI. fNIR optical imaging technology measures neural activity and hemodynamic response in the prefrontal cortex. Subjects wear an fNIR sensor (IR light sources […]
BIOPAC co-founder and R&D Director, Alan Macy, was interviewed recently by Roger Durling for the Santa Barbara Independent. The article, “The S.B. Questionnaire: Alan Macy,” provided a background excerpt of the Santa Barbara entrepreneurs’ past as well as his answers to the Proust Questionnaire. The biomedical technology developed at BIOPAC reflects an ambitious understanding of the natural and […]
Physiological researchers have been studying the lower body through examining impacts of training, movement instruction, and innovative research measurements on an individual’s well being. The following articles represent recent developments in physiological research, moving our understanding of lower limbs and the body as a whole forward, one step at a time. The Importance of Form Improper […]
