Script 052 – Metabolic Analysis




BIOPAC Developer - scripting, network data transfer, API, support

The Metabolic Analysis script, with the companion graph template, is used to measure metabolic parameters from a subject: air flow, %O2, %CO2.

File setup and calibration is entirely scripted, meaning the program has full control of the process and the user is queried for input only when the script requires it. Program flow is manifested with buttons and prompts. A detailed Script Guide is included with the download.

Place the script and template within the program directory:

    • MetabolicAnalysisTemplate.gtl

Launch AcqKnowledge (with an active Scripting license).

Select the Script menu and choose the script (.bbs file), which will be invoked when it is selected.

Effort & Motivation: Using a Hand Dynamometer in the MRI and in the Lab

Many studies use hand dynamometry to objectively quantify exerted effort during experiments most commonly related to the study of motivation.
We’ll focus on this topic and go over everything you need to know to record dynamometry data in the MRI or in the lab. Topics include
– Calibrating for maximum voluntary contraction (MVC)
– Real-time access to the dynamometer signal by third-party applications
– How researchers have used this equipment
– Creating a visual task that gives feedback on exerted effort as well as rewards to the participant
