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.
New series of unshielded 45 cm electrode leads with thin cable; suitable for facial EMG and other areas where lighter, shorter lead cables are required. Use for female Touchproof connectors to pinch clip connectors—connect electrodes to either a C-series amplifier or an MEC. The pinch connectors are light weight and the lead cable tinsel wire […]
The new issue of Psychophysiology has a study “Quantifying rapid changes in cardiovascular state with a moving ensemble average” using MEAP for preprocessing/analysis and BIOPAC hardware and software for data collection, display, and storage. The proof of concept study demonstrates a viable method for the adoption of ICG measures across the field of psychophysiology. MEAP (moving ensemble […]
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 covering MRI, ECG, and Laser Doppler Flow measurement. fMRI & Thermal Perception: The neural mechanisms underlying thermal perception (how hot or cold we perceive the temperature to be) have not been fully […]
