Introductory Methods in Neuroscience.
The HHMI equipment enabled us to create this new laboratory course for
neuroscience and biopsychology students.
Zachary Florin ‘99 studies the
effects of a
stimulant on the behavior of
Operant Chamber. For experiments on live rats.
Students measure the behavioral responses to stimuli such as amphetamines.
Jill Pitarresi ‘98 and Kirsten
Baumann ‘97 use a Biopac Physiograph
to record and analyze an electromyograph
(EMG) with Assistant Professor
Back to HHMI
Biopac Computerized Physiograph.
Students measure electrical signals from human muscle,
skin, and heart rate (EKG). The Galvanic Skin Response (used
in "lie detectors") measures conductivity of skin and sweat glands.
