Vibration in air or another medium can be detected by sensory organs as sound. This can also be easily detected and interpreted by electronic instrumentation for utilization in life science research applications.


Audible sound can easily be detected using a microphone and sampled through a PowerLab to LabChart. There are wide range of applications where recorded sound might provide utility in research.

A cardio microphone can be used to detect the timing of valve closures in the heart, or a sound may be played to a subject and simultaneously sampled in order to elicit and detect an emotional response. LabChart’s Audio Output feature can make use of this signal for qualitative investigation post analysis.
