New Citations | The Versatility of BIOPAC

BIOPAC offers complete systems for life science research and education—human, animal, or in vivo studies, as well as powerful software and automated analysis including industry-standard data acquisition amplifiers, transducers & electrodes. BIOPAC can be used inside or outside the lab to measure physiology anytime, anyplace on anything.

Aiming for the Gold Standard

These researchers attempted to create an armband that could measure both ECG and EDA data to analyze sympathetic nerve activity. How could they prove that their measurements from their invention were correct? By validating them against the gold standard of BIOPAC’s MP160 Data Acquisition System.

Tough to Swallow

Head and neck cancer patients often see significant changes in swallowing physiology after different types of treatments, including surgery or chemotherapy. This study aimed to explore the differences in swallow coordination between pretreatment and posttreatment groups using a TSD160A from BIOPAC to help measure nasal airflow pressure.

Zecker, PhD, and Bonnie Martin-Harris, PhD)

Emotion-Related Physiological Reactions to Gaming Dynamics

What type of emotion-related physiological responses and subjective ratings do first-person shooter video games cause for gamers who both like and dislike those type of gaming dynamics? To find out, researchers used an MP Research System with AcqKnowledge software to measure ECG, EDA, and facial EMG to compare the two types of gaming groups.

Projection VR, Training, Physiological Evaluation & Biofeedback

Projection-based virtual reality is a powerful immersive medium that makes it easy to experience VR applications without the need for heavy headgear or cables. With unobtrusive wireless sensing technology, researchers can easily measure their physiological and behavioral responses.

You Will Learn To:
• Understand key principles of combing virtual reality + physiological data recording
• Mark events from the simulation into the physiological record
• Access physiological data in the VR environment for biofeedback and control
• Set up a projection-based virtual reality simulation room
• Analyze the resulting data
