A recent study focuses on the development and validation of St Andrews Behavioural Interaction Coding Scheme (SABICS).
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.
These days, researchers need to acquire their knowledge and skills with maximum effectiveness and a minimal investment of time.
Autism Speaks recently looked back on 2011 and named the top 10 autism research achievements of the year.
How are scholars studying learning in infancy? How do they study parental influence?
Patterns in behavior are everywhere around us. Think about the sequence of behavior when you do the laundry, get ready in the morning, play a game of soccer, or drive your car to work.

The coding scheme or ethogram determines what data you collect and is, thus, an essential part of your behavioral study.
Automatic emotion detection provides valuable insight into human-machine interaction measuring the users’ direct response and is therefore often used in this type of research.
