Physiology Teaching

This page describes the Biopac Student Lab System, designed for implementing student practicals in physiology.

Biopac Student Lab

The Biopac Student Lab revolutionizes how students learn the life sciences by eliminating complex setup tasks and letting them focus on learning the subject. More than just a data recorder, the Biopac Student Lab is an integrated set of hardware, software, and documentation that guides students through a set of lessons which illustrate fundamental physiological principles. Lessons cover topics ranging from muscle contraction to cardiac activity to reaction time.

For the BIOPAC MP100 Research System, please see our separate Data Acquisition section.


 

Biopac Student Lab - Basic

 

How it works

Part of Lesson 7

Included with the Biopac Student Lab is a set of pre-defined software "lessons" which contain the information the Biopac Student Lab needs to collect data.

This cuts setup time by 90%, and reduces the amount of technical instruction required in the classroom. The familiar point and click interface also lets students concentrate on learning the content of each lesson, rather than just how to use a computer.

To run a particular lesson, just select it from a menu and click the mouse button. The software will automatically set up the screen display and initialize the hardware with the appropriate gain settings, sampling rate, and filtering. A separate text window guides students through the lesson every step of the way.
