This is a 4-channel unit that is used to monitor GSC (skin conductance), EMG, ECG, and EEG.

Uses

  • Used to monitor GSC, EMG, ECG
  • Analysis software to score Heart Rate Variability (HRV), Impedance Cardiography (IMP), and Electrodermal Activity Skin Conductance (EDA).

Specifications

  • Bio-Potential and GSC Monitor MW3000A

Details

This peripheral physiological system was purchased from Mindware Technologies Ltd. One testing room of the Human Electrophysiology Facility is equipped with this autonomic assessment system, capable of assessing GSC, EMG, and ECG. This system is fully integrated with the EEG system and capable of running in parallel. The ambulatory unit is worn on the belt of the participant, eliminating strain on leads that would otherwise traverse the length of the room and could easily become entangled and pulled from the electrode.  The data is transmitted wirelessly to the acquisition computer, allowing the researcher to monitor the data in real time.
