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.
Basic principles of physiological data collection covers fundamentals of data collection and equipment configuration equipment to help you refine experiment protocols and avoid costly missteps. Frazer Findlay, CEO of BIOPAC, discusses common mistakes with physiology recording and shares his secrets for collecting great data. Topics include: How to prep a subject and where to place electrodes; Which type of electrodes work for different body signals; Analog to Digital Conversion; Sample rates (correct vs. incorrect); Filtering; and Scaling and calibration.Watch On Demand Now!
