A guide to peripheral physiology measurements using the BrainAmp ExG MR – Part 2: Let’s focus on ECG

by Dr. Robert Stoermer (Brain Products Head of Technical Support) and Dr. Tracy Warbrick (Brain Products Application Specialist EEG-fMRI) Abstract In this part of our peripheral physiology series we introduce ECG measurement using the BrainAmp ExG MR in the MR environment. The safety issues associated with ECG in the MR environment are highlighted. We explain…

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…
