Making Physiology Happen


PK-TA Psychological Physiology Teaching Kit

The iWorx TA Control Module included in the kit allows EEGs from the left and right hemispheres to be recorded simultaneously, as well as skin conductance and temperature, respiration rate, heart rate, blood pressure, or pulse volume. The dual biopotential input also allows simultaneous monitoring of EMGs from muscles in opposition, or all six limb leads of the cardiogram and the cardiac angle.
