Masson and colleagues from Université Paris-Saclay, France, designed a test kitchen to investigate food storage processes. According to them, the use of video cameras was of great value for analyzing behaviors.
World Autism Awareness Day is an internationally recognized day on April 2nd. A good reason to sum up the top 5 best read blog posts about autism of the last year for you.
Researchers all over the world are trying to find ways to measure real consumer responses and behavior.
A product package should help consumers make a quick decision. Donata Tania Vergura and Beatrice Luceri from the University of Parma, Italy investigated different packaging designs.
This study shows that emotions in company messages or advertisements could be used to build and measure brand value. This measure can thus be added to social media metrics guidelines to assess success rate.
With use of prerecorded videos of surgeries, researchers examined the impact of the layout of an OR on work patterns and flow disruptions of a circulating nurse.
If you are born profoundly deaf, it is very likely that modern technology in the form of cochlear implants can improve your hearing.
During a long flight, it is often tempting to take a nap in the airplane seat. Which travel pillow offers you the most comfort for this?
Good behavioral research requires good methods, and good tools. Three Noldus customer stories display how innovative solutions have advanced their behavioral research.
In her study, Visser focuses on one of the possible mechanisms that may underlie limited information recall in patients: the relationship between emotional stress and memory performance.

The lab of Prof. Richard Baines investigates how the electrical development of neurons is regulated. His research was long based on the larvae of fruitfly, but the lab recently started using zebrafish larvae.
Zebrafish have more in common with humans than meets the eye. This is why they have become a “go-to” model in neuroscience research. But one difference remains: we walk and they swim.
We are all very familiar with zebrafish as a model species in neuroscience research. Today, let's talk about another fish, the Japanese medaka.
This week we have a guest post by Iris Hovens. She has done some really interesting research into the consequences of surgery in terms of reduced memory and concentration problems.
Sexual selection can lead to fascinating phenomena. We are all familiar with the fabulous color display of male peacocks to attract females. Less well known, but definitely not less interesting, are stalk-eyed flies.
Bed nets treated with insecticide (ITNs) greatly decrease malaria illness and mortality. ITNs can decrease infant mortality from all causes by more than 20%.
Letting animals walk freely in gait research. At Noldus, we strongly believe this is the way to go, so that is how our CatWalk XT system works.
Mouse models are essential for neuroscience research. Many tests are susceptible to bias. Home cage testing provides a number of solutions.
Aphids are small insects that pierce plant leaves and suck out their contents. Although they inflict limited physical destruction to the plant, aphids commonly infect plants with viruses, which can destroy complete harvests.
Aggressive behavior is adaptive for most species. But how is this aggressive behavior mediated in the brain? A recent study indicates that the hippocampus is a crucial neural component in mediating social recognition.
