Parent-child interaction: Measuring the effectiveness of interactions

Quality of parent-child interaction is one of the major predictors of emotional and social development of children, which makes parent-child interaction an important focus of child development research.
clinical-interviews

Clinical interviews – analyzing verbal and non-verbal behavior

In general, researchers choose the methods and techniques that best suit their research objectives. That’s no different when researching doctor-patient communication or any other clinical interview setting.

3 Examples of pattern detection research

Patterns in behavior are everywhere around us. Think about the sequence of behavior when you do the laundry, get ready in the morning, play a game of soccer, or drive your car to work.
observing-behavior-jury-deliberations

Observing behavior - Jury deliberations, what happens behind closed doors

Researchers increasingly study what goes on behind closed doors. Thirty mock-jury deliberations were filmed and behaviors were then coded using The Observer software.
behavioral-observation

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.

How to collect high quality data in an observation lab

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.
how-to-measure-consumer-behavior

Three ways how to measure consumer behavior

Measure eating behaviors and consumers likes and dislikes, measure consumer behavior on mobile phones, and measure shopping behavior using mobile technology.

2 Examples of eye tracking lab set-ups

Wouldn’t every researcher want to automate certain measurements and save valuable time? In the 1800s, the study of eye movements for instance was done by means of direct observations!
examples-infant-behavior-research

Examples of infant behavior research experiments

In infancy you can observe an explosive growth. A lot of researchers focus on this age group and observe parent-infant dyads to get more insight in specific behaviors.

Observing social behavior and communication in wild elephants

A trunk-to-mouth greeting ritual. Yes. We are talking about elephants here.

Zebrafish as lab animal increasingly popular

Zebrafish is the new rat. Or mouse. More and more rodents in the lab are being replaced by these nifty little striped fish. They are easy to maintain, reproduce and develop rapidly.
