International researchers have recently teamed up to quantify brain activity of both Canadian and Japanese participants in response to emotion rating tests with background social cues. They used a BIOPAC EEG100C along with MP150 Data Acquisition to obtain ERP data. The study found a significant difference in response activity between participants from each country, implying a disparity in social judgment across cultures on a neurological level.

Exercise physiologists have analyzed the differences in fatigue levels between highly trained martial artists and non-athletes. The researchers used a BIOPAC Hand Grip Dynamometer with an MP Research System to gather grip strength data, and analyzed the results with AcqKnowledge software. The study described the disparity in hand strength as well as muscle fatigue and blood lactate levels between the groups. Read the entire study here.
Researchers at Harvard have assessed the usefulness of non-invasive monitoring of oxygen transport in patients afflicted with Sickle Cell Disease (SCD). They used a BIOPAC Airflow Transducer as well as an Oxygen Measurement Amplifier to observe oxygen consumption activity in SCD patients. The study suggests that non-invasive techniques are a viable and useful tool for learning more about SCD. Read the paper here.
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. J., Smith, J. […]
