While the HRV 2.0 Add-On has incorporated many changes at the user interface, there are some really important hidden improvements too - like the underlying algorithm.
Today, we’ll look at the changes to the user interface of HRV 2.0 Add-On. Firstly, you can control all basic settings from a single dialog. We have included presets for humans and several common animal subjects for you to choose from, or you can enter your own.
Our latest HRV Add-On makes life simple. HRV 2.0 lets you do everything for heart rate variability in one place. There is no need to import or export data or fuss about switching between separate data acquisition and analysis programs. You can acquire data, detect beats, exclude ectopics and view time and frequency domain analyses all in the same module.
Mahmoud Khalil, representing ADInstruments in the region, and Emeritus Professor Tony Macknight ran the session on “Next Generation Teaching Systems for Medical Education,” which explored the idea of active learning through technology, after the GCC Medical Education Conference at the Arabian Gulf University in Manama, in the Kingdom of Bahrain.
The Sam Drogo Technology in the Classroom Award is an annual award for a Human Anatomy and Physiology Society (HAPS) member who demonstrates the innovative use of technology to engage undergraduates in Human Anatomy and Physiology. This year we'd like to announce two winners of this award - Wendy Riggs and Aaron Fried.
We’re happy to announce the winner of the 2014 ADInstruments Macknight Early Career Innovative Educator Award, Dr. Aaron Bunker of Morningside College. Congratulations!
Applications for scholarships to attend the CrawFly Invertebrate Neurobiology course for Educators at Cornell University in June are open now. This time ADInstruments is working with TReND (Teaching and Research in Neuroscience for Development in Africa) to provide extra travel assistance to a scientist from Africa to attend this inspirational and practical course.
Rowan Ellis, founder of the Body Synergy gym, has a simple but compelling approach to relieving musculoskeletal pain. His hypothesis: to protect the spine and joints, one must contract the right muscles at the right time. Rowan believes that poor physical awareness of which muscles we are using, especially the trapezius, is a root cause for a variety of back problems and some forms of migraine. The Delsys EMG system allows him to view clients’ muscle activity in great detail.
They're slow, spineless and slimy but if you think you don't have much in common with a snail, think again. Researchers are learning a surprising amount about the human brain by studying snails and we thought it was time to expand our snail neurophysiology session in the latest Crawdad educator's course.
Michigan State University has been helping local high school students prepare for the upcoming Brain Bee, with a series of weekend workshops. The latest was Brain Sparks, supported by ADInstruments, which used PowerLabs to study the electrical signals generated by the nervous system in crayfish, fruit flies and the students themselves.
Sometimes it’s the tiny details that make all the difference - in this case, a minor but important addition to the Welcome Center in LabChart 8 that lets you create easy access to shared data and settings.
Education is really important to everyone here - it's great to think that we can help teachers help students towards a career in life sciences - and every so often, we like to put ourselves on the receiving end of our LabTutor experiments.
Our new Student Licenses provide access to LabChart Pro for data analysis. Your students can work on data outside of class, so you can devote more of their lab time to teaching hands-on, practical, data-collection techniques.
Another of our favorite additions to LabChart 8 are the Send and Publish functions. Designed to help both teachers and researchers, they’re a great way to share data from the classroom or the lab.
We’re proud to announce the recipients of the ADInstruments Neurobiology Educator Development Scholarships: Dr Zeni Shabani, from Minot State University, and Dr Martine Mirrione, from Quinnipiac University.
