Substance_AbusePsychophysiological Indicators for Substance Abuse in Preschoolers: Children’s development of emotional regulation is seen as an extremely crucial part in their development of social behavior. Researchers from the University of Oregon hypothesized that children whom have faced high levels of adversity, and would thus have low emotional regulation, would help identify physiological markers that could indicate a propensity toward substance abuse. ECG data was recorded from mothers and their children using BioNomadix wireless ECG amplifiers and an MP150 data acquisition system. Find the full paper here.

Muscle Activation During Resistance Exercise: Researchers investigated electromyographic amplitude, EMG mean power frequency, exercise volume, total work and muscle activation, and time under concentric load during, and muscle cross-sectional area (mCSA) before and after three sets of resistance exercise. Their study was the first to compare all those data sets to see what effect they would have on individuals’ performing resistance exercise. EMG was recorded from subjects using wired EMG100C amplifiers and an MP150 system. Find the full experiment here.

Alternative Medicine Practices for Menopausal Women: Artemisia princeps Pamp (APP), Leonurus japonicas Houtt (LJH), and Gardenia jasminoides Ellis fruit (GJE) have been used as alternative medicine to treat women’s diseases related to reproductive system health. Scientists thus investigated the combination of the three to treat symptoms of estrogen deficiency. The treatments were tested on rats and data was recorded using a BIOPAC O2 and CO2 measurement system. Read the full paper here.
