Home>tDCS and HD-tDCS Neuronal Stimulation App Note released
Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS) is an electrical stimulation method, which employs a direct current of value typically between 1 and 2 milliamps (ma). This method is typically oriented to neuronal stimulation in the brain. Depending on the type of electrodes used for stimulation, and their associated placement on the scalp and body, Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS) may also be referred to as High Definition Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (HD-tDCS).
Using BIOPAC for tDCS and HD-tDCS…
Total arbitrary control of current wave shape is possible (DC or AC stimulation).
Multiple STMISOLA units can be applied to the same subject.
Electrode configurations are highly mutable.
Exact output current applied can be sampled.
Other physiological signals can be sampled simultaneously to look for tDCS impact on hemodynamics, sympathetic or parasympathetic nervous system.
A new Application Note illustrates HD-tDCS setup using BIOPAC equipment – click here for tDCS using STMISOLA.
The NIBP100E noninvasive blood pressure system provides continuous, beat‐to‐beat, blood pressure signal and values (Sys, Dia, MAP) and Pulse Rate (PR)*. The NIBP100E amplifier with CNAP™ technology is controlled by AcqKnowledge software (v5.0.7) for MP160 Research Systems. The system outputs a continuous blood pressure waveform that is similar to a direct arterial pressure waveform. The amplifier […]
BIOPAC provides software and hardware that allows research teams to study physiological measures related to stress. Here are a few notable studies using BIOPAC equipment for ECG, EDA, and EEG/ERP. Moms Moderating Stress Can relaxation techniques help lower stress on both mother and fetus? Using an MP36R Data Acquisition system to record ECG and EDA, this study […]
