Biopac Science Lab System with MP40 allows high school students to display, record, and analyze data from their own bodies from 11 different physiology lessons. This approach promotes scientific inquiry and student participation and engages student minds to develop critical thinking skills through real and exciting lab experiences.
The software includes a series of guided science lessons for students to record and analyze their own heart signals (ECG), brain waves (EEG), muscle activity (EMG), and eye movement (EOG).
Lessons support national science standards and easily align with Biology textbooks.
The software guides students with on-screen instructions and prompts.
The system includes detailed lesson plans that guide the student through self-paced and independent investigative experiments.
Students can work in isolation or as part of a team and compare results.
Analysis incorporates mathematical tools and models to guide and improve the posing of questions, gathering data, constructing explanations and communicating results.
The unit complies with all the latest international safety standards. The system easily connects to a Windows-based PC—just plug it in like it’s a pair of headphones.
Student excitement builds as they see their own data and begin to explore the fundamentals behind the signals.
The handheld Biopac Science Lab MP40 unit connects to the computer via Line-In. If a computer does not have a built-in Line-In jack, an external USB audio adapter can be used (such as USB-SOUND ). Audio line-in is not the same as headphones; see Adapter Compatibility for details.

The best ways to set up participants to record good data for life science research and teaching labs. – Which electrode? – Which lead? – Do I need Ground (GND)? – Best placement? – Best recording system?
We’re turning on the web cam and showing you LIVE how to best prep participants for a variety of life science signals and measurements.
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 […]
