Neonatal white matter injury
Preterm birth is a major problem in neonatal healthcare. Erik van Tilborg developed a new animal model to closely mimic this clinical situation, an important step in finding new treatment options.
What's new in healthcare communication?
A recent study focuses on the development and validation of St Andrews Behavioural Interaction Coding Scheme (SABICS).
Clinical interviews – analyzing verbal and non-verbal behavior
In general, researchers choose the methods and techniques that best suit their research objectives. That’s no different when researching doctor-patient communication or any other clinical interview setting.
Physiological measurements, behavioral observations, and more
Autism Speaks recently looked back on 2011 and named the top 10 autism research achievements of the year.
Why behavioral data collection works
How are scholars studying learning in infancy? How do they study parental influence?
Observing behavior - Jury deliberations
Researchers increasingly study what goes on behind closed doors. Thirty mock-jury deliberations were filmed and behaviors were then coded using The Observer software.
Systematic behavioral observation – two coding scales
Structured observations are one of the many ways to gather data. Observing behavior rather than asking questions about it can provide you with a multitude of valuable information.
The coding scheme or ethogram determines what data you collect and is, thus, an essential part of your behavioral study.
Horses: behavioral research, physiology and biomechanics
Besides the study of the relation between humans and popular pets such as cats and dogs, human-horse interaction is an increasingly popular subject of science.
Four ways to study visitor behavior
Museums, zoos, theme parks, and aquariums all observe the behavior of their visitors in order to find the best ways to entertain and educate.
Exploring psychophysiological research methods
More and more, scientists across a wide spectrum of research backgrounds are recognizing the relevance of psychophysiological methods.
