Measuring Long-Term, Wireless EEG in Rodents using Epitel-Epoch and BIOPAC Systems

Measuring Long-Term, Wireless EEG in Rodents using Epitel-Epoch and BIOPAC Systems

Experts discuss the fundamentals of wireless, long-term EEG recording in small animals and present new research capabilities enabled through the integration of technology and physiological analysis systems.

In this webinar sponsored by BIOPAC Systems and Epitel, Frazer Findlay and Mark Lehmkuhle discuss study design and demonstrate correct equipment set up and operation when recording small animal EEG. Specifically, Mr. Lehmkuhle demonstrates the application of the implantable Epoch wireless EEG/neural signal system — he reviews surgical procedure and transmitter implantation, device setup, and best-practices that will lead to successful and reproducible data collection. 

Following, Mr. Findlay provides a detailed demonstration in BIOPAC AcqKnowledge software, including how to set up multi-channel data acquisition, integrate video capture, interrogate EEG data and improve signal quality, complete EEG frequency analysis, and how to use important software functions (such as “Focus Areas”) for seizure detection and sleep analysis.
