Virtual Reality Can Enhance a Wide Array of Research Studies
You can use VR to present immersive environments or test virtual iterations of a product, and measuring physiological responses adds lots of information that expands analysis and understanding.
Are you setting up a virtual reality study? BIOPAC can provide VR/Immersive Solutions with Physiology Data, including options for multi-modal stimulation (visual, auditory, olfactory, haptic, and electric), programmable stimulation, automated event marking & scoring, and more.

How to Integrate BIOPAC Data into the Virtual World | Multi-signal, Multi-subject Streaming in Vizard This example shows how to stream fNIR data and physiological data (heart rate) from four participants using tools in COBI, AcqKnowledge, and Vizard:
How to Setup Network Data Transfer (NDT) in AcqKnowledge and Vizard
How to Create a Stimulus Presentation Paradigm in VR | In this example, food items are presented, but the paradigm can be modified for other stimulus presentations:
The program starts and stops AcqKnowledge (ACQ) automatically. Simply load all 3D model files in the stimuli subfolder and then randomize the order of object presentation. Pre-loads all models in the queue to reduce lag. When an object is grabbed, a marker is sent indicating the object name. Mean and minimum distance to object for each trial are reported as markers in ACQ. Sending markers to ACQ is optional and set in a variable.
Script 060 – Dynamometry Feedback | MVC line trace A participant records a signal (MVC from a dynamometer in this example) and then approximates the target path as closely as possible. A text file is produced with both the target path data and the approximation data so it can be loaded and analyzed in AcqKnowledge.
Join BIOPAC and Argus Science for a personal look at new Eye Tracking technology for Mobile and Screen-Based Participants. Learn how to utilize ETAnalysis StimTrac combining different types of eye tracking functionality into one tool.
Frazer Findlay from BIOPAC and Robert Wilson from Argus Science will review experiment setup and new safety protocols on how to record Eye Tracking while keeping safe from COVID-19.
Includes setup tips with best practices in the lab environment or in the field, a live demo, and Q&A. Webinar is LIVE October 28th at 8:00 AM PT.

Smelling your Emotional State Our sense of smell delivers important information to our brains, such as whether or not food is bad, or reminding us of a pleasant memory (crisp, fall air, anyone?). This fMRI-based study recorded PPG using a Photoplethysmograph Transducer for MRI connected to a PPG100C-MRI Amplifier. A differential pressure transducer continuously recorded variations in […]
