This page provide basic information about which measure to choose and what for!
* Option 1: Use the “Save As” command in Acqknowledge software ans choose the matlab format, it creates a structure.
* Option 2: Use the “load_acq.m” function (does not work with latest Acqknowledge data format, see above)
* Option 3: Use the librairies for reading BIOPAC files (Python) at https://github.com/uwmadison-chm/bioread
Specific software and toolboxes are available for different measures (EDA, HRV etc). Please visit the corresponding sections for more information.

- MAHNOB-HCI: 30 participants were shown fragments of movies and pictures, while monitoring them with 6 video cameras, a head-worn microphone, an eye gaze tracker, as well as physiological sensors measuring ECG, EEG (32 channels), respiration amplitude, and skin temperature.
EATMINT: multi-modal and multi-user recordings of affect and social behaviors in a collaborative setting. The following signals were recorded for 30 dyads (i.e. 60 participants) : ECG, EDA, blood volume pulse, respiration and skin temperature; eye-movements (eye-tracking), facial expressions, software actions logs;speech signals and transcripts.
DEAP: multimodal dataset for the analysis of human affective states. The electroencephalogram (EEG) and peripheral physiological signals of 32 participants were recorded as each watched 40 one-minute long excerpts of music videos.
RECOLA: database consists of 9.5 hours of audio, visual, and physiological (electrocardiogram, and electrodermal activity) recordings of online dyadic interactions between 46 French speaking participants, who were solving a task in collaboration.
MMDB: multimodal (video, audio, and physiological) recordings of the social and communicative behavior of toddlers.

The BBL is fully equipped with different BIOPAC systems
BIOPAC Hardware and Software Guides contain all the information you need to setup the amplifiers, gain, filters and also how to perform basic and advanced signal analyses. You may also have a look at BIOPAC on youtube
