Many people are fascinated by human behavior. Why do we act the way we do? How is our behavior influenced, or measured? And why is behavioral change so difficult?
A mask-like facial expression is an early symptom of Parkinson's disease. How can we understand the relation between changed facial expressions and disease severity? Researcher Yang and their team used FaceReader to find out.
What is behavior? Behavior is a fundamental aspect of human and animal life. In scientific terms, behavior is a subject of study within the field of behavioral research, which aims to understand different behaviors.
At the Centre of Infant Cognition at UBC in Vancouver, researchers conduct independent studies as well as participate in ManyBabies projects to further understand the development of moral and social behaviors of infants.
A decrease in the ability to make contact with others leads to limitations in communication. A Swedish research team investigated whether eye tracking assisted therapy could help children with motor impairments communicate.
Conferences and events are a great way to get updated on the latest trends in your field, meet peers, or present your work. Discover some of the best usability and UX conferences in 2023 to attend.
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.
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?
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.
The Society for Simulation in Healthcare (SSH) organizes the International Meeting on Simulation in Healthcare (IMSH), which is the world’s largest scientific conference.

We’ve put together a short list of the best (behavioral) neuroscience conferences for you to attend. Opportunities to meet up and talk science!
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.
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.
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.
By measuring locomotion and investigating dopaminergic neurons, complex dopamine circuitry is uncovered. How are amphetamine and our biological clock involved in this?
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?
The color x-maze can be used to pick up symptoms of Alzheimer's disease in AD-mice months before traditional cognitive tests.
The scope of measuring behavior goes beyond rats, mice and (zebra)fish. As behavioral experts we love to also highlight research in animals such as mites, elephants, dolphins and shrimps.
Using long-term home cage behavioral research, scientists successfully created a behavioral characterization of Stargazer mutant mouse, a model often used in epilepsy research.
Danionella cerebrum, a recently discovered cyprinid fish, has the smallest known vertebrate brain. What are the behavioral differences or similarities to their zebrafish relatives?
