Posted by Natasja Bogers on Fri 25 May. 2018

Research into understanding human perception has been around for centuries. The science of behavior and mind was already studied by the ancient Greek philosophers. Nowadays psychologists rely upon data to make sense of the world. 

At Noldus, we have dedicated ourselves to make the best tools to advance human behavioral research for 30 years, and love to share our knowledge! Make sure not to miss these 3 white papers and case studies on psychology research!

WHITE PAPER: Autism research and The Observer XT

Research on Autism Spectrum Disorder has increased enormously over the years. The extensive research has led to many findings and has resulted in new understandings of how to detect ASDs early in life, setup therapies, stimulate developmental processes, and much more.

Autism is the most common Autism Spectrum Disorder, and knowledge is key to developing a better understanding of the disorder.

CASE STUDY: Infant behavior research

Interaction between children and their parents is a classical study object in developmental psychology, pediatrics, and child psychiatry

At the Institute of Developmental Neurology of the Beatrix Children’s Hospital of the University Medical Center Groningen researchers developed an observation protocol to quantify in a systematic way the contents of the physiotherapeutic sessions. They looked into setting up an observation protocol, and how to compare the effect of different interventions. It will help you understand why systematic observations are used to measure the effect of a new intervention.

WHITE PAPER: How to Build and A/V Lab

Among the methods used for collecting data, video observation is a non-invasive form. It enables psychologists, and other observers, to capture the (inter)actions of the subject(s) remotely without distracting them. Another benefit is the unlimited number of times video recordings can be re-played, in order to make sure you didn’t miss anything.

An AudioVisual lab is designed to allow you to observe your test participants unobtrusively, in an environment similar to your test participant’s natural surroundings. Get your white paper on how to build an A/V lab here:
