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.
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.
