BIOPAC has teamed up with several authors to add even more functionality to your systems.
As an alternative to the Biopac Student Lab Manual (MANBSL3S) that ships with each BSL system, Stephen N. Sarikas’ Laboratory Investigations in Anatomy and Physiology includes BIOPAC exercises, giving you another view of how to use our lessons.
“To keep pace with the increasing use of technology in the lab. the laboratory manual includes four activities using the Biopac Student Lab System, with clear, concise directions for using the clinically oriented BIOPAC equipment.”
Electromyography (EMG – L02)
Electroencephalography (EEG – L03)
Electrocardiography (ECG – L05)
Depth of Ventilation and Breathing Rate (Respiration – L08)
This concise lab manual is designed for instructors who wish to avoid cookbook-style lab instruction for Anatomy & Physiology. Each of the exercises in Laboratory Investigations in Anatomy and Physiology provides useful background information for completing the exercise without duplicating information that can be found in a regular anatomy and physiology textbook.
Through the use of an engaging connective learning methodology, author Stephen Sarikas builds each lab exercise step on the previous one, helping students understand complex ideas and make connections between concepts. By consistently emphasizing the relationship between structure and function, Sarikas challenges students to ask questions and interpret what they experience in the lab.
Video is a compelling addition to physiology experiments. Researchers need to understand and observe the behavior of the participant, identify problems during the experiment and get a general sense of behavior and how that behavior relates to the data. If data looks wrong or bad, video can help researchers figure out why.
Recent studies in Psychophysiology, EMG, ECG and PPG measurement utilizing BIOPAC software and hardware: Fight or Flight (Reflex Response Time) “Fight or flight” is a physiological response that occurs due to a perceived threat to survival. It can physiologically be observed through an increase in heart rate, respiratory rate, blood pressure, oxygen availability, and other mechanisms. In […]
HRV, EMG, and EEG studies using BIOPAC hardware and software include: DON’T STRESS Humans encounter various stressful situations everyday at work, home, and school. Such stress when experienced at high degrees and/or for a long duration of time could lead to cardiovascular diseases, cognitive dysfunctions, and psychological disorders. This study examined the validity of a novel physiological measurement […]
