How to Synchronize Participant Video With Physiology Data

How to Synchronize Participant Video With Physiology Data


An essential webinar for scientists interested in recording synchronized video with physiological measurements in human or animal research applications.

Video is a compelling addition to any physiology experiment. Scientists need to understand and observe behaviors and reactions of the participant or animal during the experiment, identify problems (or sources of error) and make correlations between video information and the physiologic data being recorded at that moment. And while the integration of video is essential to certain research applications where behaviors are scored or movements are studied, in general, synchronized video has benefits that apply to any research application, such as improved data quality, experiment reproducibility, quality control and technician training.

During this webinar, Frazer Findlay, CEO of BIOPAC Systems, discusses fundamental strategy for adding video to any research application and demonstrate how to set up an experiment incorporating video in AcqKnowledge software.  The information shared applies to both human and animal research models where the integration of video with physiological measurements adds value to the experimental process and resulting data recorded. 

Example applications include psychophysiology, fear, anxiety and behavioral assays, cognitive neuroscience, exercise physiology (movement and kinetics), sleep studies and animal research models employing long-term physiological recordings by telemetry. 

Watch this webinar to learn:

  • How to set up a single vs multi-participant (multi-view) experiment
  • How to easily identify disruptive behavior or data anomalies
  • How video can help you score physiology data
  • How to properly sync video with physiology data
  • How to choose the right set up based on your research application (simple webcam solutions vs. advanced multi-camera setups)
