Science Night at Adams Elementary (Santa Barbara, CA) encourages students to discover, play, explore and learn about the importance of science and engineering in daily life. BIOPAC set up a BioNomadix Wireless Smart Center to allow students to record their heart rate. Electrodes were placed on students and leads were connected to a wireless transmitter that sent data to a computer running AcqKnowledge for Smart Center software that displayed heart rate data.
Adams Science Night offers free and interactive science and engineering activities for students, families and friends. In addition to seeing their heart rate at BIOPAC’s wireless ECG station, participants could explore human anatomy and learn about all the parts of the brain, explore circuits and biomedical tools, zoom into nanoscience, explore laws of physics, create videos, view the world through infrared cameras, peek out into the night sky with telescopes to reach the stars, meet native and exotic animals and insects, learn about local tidal animals and the marine sanctuary.

High-performance mobile fNIR Imaging Systems are stand-alone functional brain imaging solutions for continuous NIR spectroscopy (NIRS). These top of the line systems provide cognitive function assessment and eliminate a great many of the drawbacks of a functional MRI. Mobile subjects are comfortable and can respond naturally in real-world situations to take a test or perform mobile […]
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 […]
