Rehabilitation with Sudoku Sudoku, in the last 10 years, has seen a resurgence in popularity as a challenging logic game. Scientists have also fallen in love with the math puzzle, as a useful tool for neurorehabilitation and cognitive workouts. This study measured prefrontal cortical activity with a continuous-wave fNIR Imager to observe how participants solved the problems of a Sudoku puzzle.

Wear Your Heart on Your Sleeve

While you cannot wear your heart on your sleeve, you can wear measurement tools on your sleeve to make sure your heart is healthy. Here, scientists were able to get reliable health data from electrodes sewn into shirts while participants stretched and performed athletic activities. Heart rate data was collected using BIOPAC’s MP160 and AcqKnowledge 5.0 software.  In the future, not only could a person be fashion forward but health conscious as well.

Meditation Leads to Inner Happiness

Many different cultures across time have used meditation as a technique to help reduce anxiety. Researchers looking for data to show that meditation for 30 minutes actually reduces stress and increases positive brain waves, collected EEG signals using a BIOPAC BSL 2-Channel DAQ System to compare the data.
