Script 056 – Compute HRV Statistics

Version:

1

Description

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

This BIOPAC Basic Script computes statistical measures of heart rate variability in user-specified time intervals. The statistics computed are described in Application Note 129. Specifically they are the RMSSD, SDSD, and pNN50. Output from the script is a spreadsheet containing these statistics and the time intervals over which they are computed.

Script download includes script file and a modified version of the ECG Lead II sample data file.

See also Application Note 129 – Heart Rate Variability, and Application Note 233 – Preparing Data for Analysis.

Optimize Event-Related EDA

Electrodermal Activity (EDA) is an objective index for understanding emotional states. Researchers measure EDA to gain insights on psychological or physiological response, leading them down the path of scientific discovery. Because EDA is so important to research, BIOPAC has created tools to optimize event-related EDA analysis. Topics include: how to identify skin conductance responses, convert stim events from E-Prime SuperLab, Presentation, Vizard, etc., into AcqKnowledge events that can used for analysis, and score skin conductance responses using the AcqKnowledge automated EDA analysis tool.
