Observational research examples with older persons
In certain cases, observations for your study are best performed on-site. In this blog, we describe examples of observational studies with older age groups, conducted at home or at a healthcare facility.
Home research lab
In order to get off to a good start, it is best to describe the research or tests that are going to be performed in detail.
Early in life, children are not capable of filling out a complete questionnaire or talking to an interviewer.
In infancy you can observe an explosive growth. Many researchers focus on this age group. Think about studies aimed at learning more about speech behavior, maternal sensitivity, or learning behavior in infancy.
Crime scene investigators in action
In the near future, we will be able to feel, smell, hear, taste, and observe all the evidence that was present at a crime scene in virtual reality.
Behavioral analysis - being in the groove
Have you ever had the urge to get up off your chair and groove to the music playing on the radio?
Infant behavior experiments
When a baby is born prematurely, this baby and his or her parents often experience a rough start. You can think about eating problems, high risk of infection, or even anemia.
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.
Exploring psychophysiological research methods
More and more, scientists across a wide spectrum of research backgrounds are recognizing the relevance of psychophysiological methods.
Controlled conditions and accurate data recording are key in scientific success and a stationary lab provides these controlled conditions while allowing scientists to observe test participants unobtrusively.
