A guide to peripheral physiology measurements using the BrainAmp ExG MR – Part 1: Let’s focus on EMG

by Dr. Tracy Warbrick (Brain Products Application Specialist EEG-fMRI) and Dr. Robert Stoermer (Brain Products Head of Technical Support) Abstract Measuring peripheral physiological signals during fMRI can add valuable information about physiological processes to your studies. Our BrainAmp ExG MR can be used to record bipolar signals such as surface EMG and ECG, and signals…
