A System to Measure Physiological Response During Social Interaction in VR
Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) have a difficult experience in responding to social cues and actions. This pilot study measured the effectiveness of Virtual Reality in creating a social environment for children, measured with a BIOPAC MP Series data acquisition system and Worldviz Vizard VR System.
The Impact of Autonomous Vehicles’ Active Feedback on Trust

Self-driving technology could prove to change how human society is structured, from eliminating traffic in metropolitan areas, revitalizing the trucking industry, and even changing how we commute and travel in our cars. However, introducing this tech completely depends on a vehicle’s ability to instill trust in its human occupants as it screams along the highway at 65 mph, or swerves to avoid sudden obstacles in the road. Using BIOPAC MP160 data acquisition systems and AcqKnowledge 5.0, researchers measured biometric data in a driving simulator based on outputs from the vehicles human interface and instrument clusters.
Physiological Evaluation of a Noninvasive VNS Device
The Vagus Nerve—responsible for stimulation of the heart & lungs, is a vital system whose erratic behavior is responsible for several heart disorders. In recent years, several studies have concluded that artificial stimulation of the nerve can help deter common cardiac-related health problems. In this study, researcher’s interest was in a patient well-being; namely, how the human body reacts to this nerve stimulation. For this study, participants were outfitted with BioNomadix® data acquisition systems measuring wireless ECG and EEG.
The NICO Smart Amplifier is specifically designed to measure thoracic impedance for performing noninvasive cardiac output measurements. The amplifier terminates in two connectors for impedance (Z) and its derivative (dZ), and has a 3 m cable that connects directly to an AMI100D Amplifier Input Module. Use with EL500 series disposable electrodes and LEAD131 for a four-spot […]
Effects of MDMA on attention to positive social cues for behavioral disorders The psychostimulant drug 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA) reportedly produces distinctive feelings of empathy, closeness with others and increased social behavior. Researchers are exploring the potential of this chemical for treatment of psychiatric disorders, such as autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). This […]
