Laboratory 13 Practical Examination II- Set
up of AEP or EEG or SCR or EMG1 or
EMG2 or/and reports of results or/and
response to questions

Laboratory Examinations: There will be 2 laboratory examinations of 50 points


each for a total of 100 points representing 10% of the overall grade. The
laboratory examinations that will test your ability to set up one of the laboratory
previously done in class and obtain data. Laboratory examinations can also
include reports of results or/and response to questions.

Laboratory Reports: There will be 10 laboratory reports due the following week
of the laboratory. The content and the format will be defined during the
laboratory. The laboratory reports will be evaluated by Dr. Gerin and your Teaching
Assistants. The average from these evaluations will be your grade on the Laboratory
Reports for a total of 100pts or 10% of your overall grade.

Laboratory Pre-Lab Reports: There will be 10 Pre-Laboratory synoptic short


reports of 5 points each to be typed and provided to the instructor at the
beginning of each laboratory. The format will be: 1) Title of the Experiment; 2)
BackGround; 3) Hypothesis; 4) Materials (and Methods) [Example: 1) Title:
Human Electromyography; 2) Background: The body conduct electricity, and
bodily electrical changes can be measured; 3) We hypothesize that global muscle
electrical activity can be measured. 3bis) (when required by instructor) Aim: We
aim to demonstrate that skin surface electrodes allow to measure global muscle
electrical activity; 4) Materials (and methods): Here just list the main equipment
you are using].
