How to deal with noncompliant toddlers
We’ve all been there: getting a toddler to do what you want is a real challenge. What should you do in this situation? Researcher Larzelere and his team studied how behavioral modeling and collaborating can help.
How the ability to manage emotions shapes perception of risk
Can our ability to recognize and control our emotions determine how dangerous we perceive certain hazards to be and whether or not we think we are at risk?
Simulation-based training – it’s just like the real thing!
By conducting training sessions, students in a simulation lab develop and maintain knowledge, skills, and competencies such as interviewing skills, working with certain equipment, and teamwork procedures.
5 reasons to attend IMSH 2023, a.k.a. the medsim conference
The Society for Simulation in Healthcare (SSH) organizes the International Meeting on Simulation in Healthcare (IMSH), which is the world’s largest scientific conference.

3 debriefing steps to evaluate a training session
Debriefing digs into what and why things happened and explores implications for the future. You will gain insights in what to repeat and what to change.
Understanding behavioral psychology with The Observer XT
What causes you to procrastinate, eat junk food, or form a habit? Questions like this, about the connection between our minds and our behavior, are studied in behavioral psychology.
The New Jersey Families Study: unlocking the black box
Families are children's first teachers and home is their first school. Often we wonder or guess how such teaching is going. The NJFS, performed by the University of Princeton, offers insights.
Examples of Human Behavior Research
We humans are an intriguing species and it's no wonder researchers have always been fascinated by human behavior. Here are some examples of human behavior research over the years.
The importance of measuring infant behavior for early diagnosis of autism
Most efforts to detect autism before the age of two rely on parental reports rather than infant behavior.

We’ve put together a short list of the best (behavioral) neuroscience conferences for you to attend. Opportunities to meet up and talk science!
Extracellular vesicles from umbilical cords improve traumatic spinal cord injury
Spinal cord injury is crippling and hard to treat. Secondary injury caused by inflammation and scarring significantly impact motor function and locomotion. Extracellular vesicles can improve recovery.
How to analyze different characteristics of olfaction in rodents
Correct analysis of olfaction is crucial for an accurate interpretation of mouse social behavior. Today's guest article describes how to analyze different characteristics with the olfactory habituation/dishabituation test.
Suture anchors for rotator cuff injuries: a new animal model
Almost half of the people over the age of 60 have a rotator cuff tear in the shoulder. Research is aimed at improving surgical techniques, but techniques used in animal models differ from those applied on humans.
The Hypothalamus is involved in locomotion? Complex dopamine circuitry uncovered
By measuring locomotion and investigating dopaminergic neurons, complex dopamine circuitry is uncovered. How are amphetamine and our biological clock involved in this?
Does well plate size matter? A methodological study in zebrafish
The DanioVision observation chamber is a versatile research tool to study Zebrafish embryos and larvae by using well plates. Does the size of the wells in these plates affect study outcomes?
New method for early detection of Alzheimer's disease
The color x-maze can be used to pick up symptoms of Alzheimer's disease in AD-mice months before traditional cognitive tests.
