BIOPAC's line of MRI-compatible data acquisition equipment now includes MRI Smart Amplifiers for ECG, EDA, EEG, EMG, and PPG signals.
MRI Smart Amplifiers incorporate advanced signal processing circuitry which removes spurious MRI artifact from the source physiological data. Signal processors are able to distinguish between physiological signal and MRI artifact as manifested by gradient switching during MRI sequences, such as Shim or EPI.
In every aspect, data recording is easier and the final results are cleaner when using the MRI Smart Amplifiers to record physiological data in the fMRI or MRI.
1) Less sensitivity to electrode and transducer lead placement
2) Improved gain selectability
3) No missing spectra in physiological signal frequency band
4) No requirement for acquisition oversampling
5) No need for computer-based real-time or post-processing signal processing
6) Cleaner data available as real-time analog output

Use to measure clench force in the MRI; clench force range 0-50 kgf. The lightweight, ergonomically designed transducer provides direct readings in kilograms or pounds. Use in isolation or combine with EMG recordings for in-depth studies of muscular activity. The isometric design improves experiment repeatability and accuracy. The TSD121B-MRI has an 8 meter cable terminated for connection […]View All
Discovering and understanding what motivates humans to produce better results has intrigued many researchers. Many researchers have explored the psychophysiological processes that drive our behavior. Here are some recent studies that have used BIOPAC systems to research motivation… Motivation and Pleasure Deficits Undermine the Benefits of Social Affiliation in Psychosis. Blanchard, J.
