Psychophysiology with LabTutor

Using LabTutor, students can explore methods in psychophysiology and experimental psychology. They can analyze methods such as biofeedback, classical conditioning, electrodermal response, perception, reaction time, and psychological bias.

+Biofeedback

Investigate conscious and unconscious control of biofeedback mechanisms. Manipulate a participant’s emotional state in order to alter skin temperature, heart rate and the electrodermal response. Use biofeedback to determine if conscious control is more or less effective.

This lesson requires one of the PowerLabs below

+EDR & Classical Conditioning

Replicate Pavlov's famous classical conditioning experiments in humans. Find out how skin conductance, heart rate and respiratory rate can be altered using the principles of classical conditioning.

This lesson requires one of the PowerLabs below

+Electrodermal Response (EDR)

Learn how to measure skin conductance. Understand how conductance, respiratory rate, heart rate and skin temperature change in response to stress. Use this information to complete a polygraph (lie detection test) and correctly interpret the results.

This lesson requires one of the PowerLabs below

+Electromyography (EMG)

Record EMG during voluntary muscle contractions and investigate how contractile force changes with increasing demand. Examine the activity of antagonist muscles, see the phenomenon of coactivation and calculate nerve conduction velocity.

This lesson requires one of the PowerLabs below

+Electrooculography (EOG)

Record electrical activity associated with eye movements and recognize common artifacts in EOG recordings. Measure and understand the significance of angular displacement measurements and smooth tracking, and investigate aspects of gaze holding.

This lesson requires one of the PowerLabs below

+Introduction to Psychophysiology Methods

Become familiar with the basic psychophysiological measurements of skin conductance, respiratory rate, blood pressure, and electromyography. Combine these skills in the performance of a simple psychophysiology experiment.

This lesson requires one of the PowerLabs below

+Perception & The Size-Weight Illusion

Explore the factors that contribute to the illusion where objects of varying size, but identical weight, are perceived as different weights. Experiment with removing visual and haptic cues.

This lesson requires one of the PowerLabs below

+Sensory Illusions

Investigate mechanisms of sensory perception and experiment with techniques that send conflicting information to the central nervous system (CNS).

This lesson requires one of the PowerLabs below

+Sensory Physiology

Find the blind spot, test for color blindness and explore the science behind some optical illusions. Determine the distribution of touch and taste receptors, and investigate thermoception. Assess joint position sense and the perception of balance.

This lesson requires one of the PowerLabs below

+The Diving Response

Investigate the effects of the diving response on heart rate and peripheral circulation in humans during simulated dives as well as breath-holding.

This lesson requires one of the PowerLabs below

+The Stroop Test

Explore the physiological changes that occur when someone is stressed. Measure blood pressure, pulse rate and skin temperature while participants perform the Stroop test.

This lesson requires one of the PowerLabs below

+Visual Evoked Potential (VEP)

Use a flash stimulus and pattern reversal to generate and record brain activity in the occipital lobe.

This lesson requires one of the PowerLabs below

+Electroencephalography (EEG)

Recognize artifacts in an EEG signal caused by blinking and subject movement. Record and identify alpha and beta EEG rhythm, and analyze how a signal is affected by opening and shutting the eyes, mental activity and auditory stimulation.

This lesson requires one of the PowerLabs below

+Reflexes & Reaction Times

Discover the responses of reflexes and reaction times to a variety of stimuli. Elicit and quantify a knee jerk reaction, trigger the pupillary light reflex and a withdrawal reflex, and measure reaction time in response to a visual cue under varying conditions.

This lesson requires one of the PowerLabs below

+Introduction to LabTutor

Get to know PowerLab hardware and LabTutor software. Discover the basic features of acquisition, analysis and reporting using LabTutor.
