Notch filter

A notch filter is typically an aggressive filter that strongly attenuates the power over a narrow region of the spectrum.  For example, a notch filter at 60 Hz / 50 Hz is used to filter out power line noise with minimal disruption to the rest of the signal.

All MP biopotential amplifier modules which contain a 50/60 Hz notch filter only engage the filter when the pass filter is also ON:

Plots of the frequency responses of these filters may be found in an Appendix in the MP Systems Hardware Guide (also available via the “Help” menu in AcqKnowledge).

Eye Tracking Fundamentals

Eyes are the window to the soul and, more importantly, the brain. Psychophysiology, neuroscience, and consumer neuroscience researchers use eye tracking technology to understand emotion, behavior, subject response, decision-making, and human performance—and to help improve products and services. But not everyone knows where to start or how and why to use this important technology. A panel of eye tracking experts will present typical use cases and the latest eye tracking technology.

Join this online presentation with Q&A to learn the fundamentals of eye tracking!
