Psychophysiology

Psychophysiology is the study of the physiological relationship to psychological processes. Important psychophysiology measurements include EEG, ECG, EMG, EOG, galvanic skin response (GSR), respiration, and temperature. The BioRadio wireless psychophysiological equipment provides all these measures in a compact, wireless device. The design of the BioRadio simplifies set up and provides the opportunity to conduct your studies or teaching in any environment.

Enhanced Psychophysiology Teaching with the BioRadio Lab Course

The BioRadio Lab Course teaching system uses the BioRadio wireless data acquisition amplifier to teach students about psychophysiology monitoring, analysis, and applications. A complete, pre-written curriculum saves you time in course material development and canned experiments teach students concepts such as data acquisition, physiological monitoring and signal analysis, and clinical applications. A variety of labs make the BioRadio Lab Course a great solution for undergraduate through graduate level courses.

With the BioRadio Lab Course, students will learn the following about psychophysiology measurement and analysis

  • How to acquire physiological data using BioRadio wireless data acquisition system
  • The fundamentals of ECG measurement, electrode placement and common analysis techniques
  • Proper electrode placement and recording techniques for EEG measurement and differentiation between alpha, beta, theta, and delta waves
  • How to measure EOG (electro-oculography) and detect movement and eye blinks
  • The characteristics of normal EEG versus seizure and grand mal seizure activity using a database of abnormal EEG signals
  • Detection of different states of alertness using real-time EEG signals
  • Standard respiratory sensor use including pressure based airflow cannulas, thermocouples, and respiratory effort belts
  • The correlation between respiration, ECG, and blood oxygen saturation
  • How to detect heart rate from a raw ECG signal
