Facts about FaceReader and automated facial expression analysis

There have been many statements about using automated facial expression analysis to assess emotions. Let’s take a look at what is actually possible and impossible to do with FaceReader, through a game of true and false.
multimodal-research

The power of multimodal research in human behavior studies

By implementing multimodal research, scientists are hoping to gain a more complete and nuanced understanding of human behavior than is possible through the examination of any single modality.
how-to-study-human-behavior

How to study human behavior

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?
parkinsons-disease-facial-expressions

How do people with Parkinson's disease express emotions?

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

What is behavior?

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.

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-rotator-cuff-injuries-new-animal-model

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.
hypothalamus-and-locomotion

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?
well-plate-size-zebrafish-behavior

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?
ViS4M

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.
5-animal-blogs

5 Animal blogs not about rats, mice or zebrafish

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.

Tracking tiny transparent fish with EthoVision XT

Danionella cerebrum, a recently discovered cyprinid fish, has the smallest known vertebrate brain. What are the behavioral differences or similarities to their zebrafish relatives?
history-and-technology-of-catwalk-xt

What you need to know about the CatWalk gait analysis method

Let's take a little step back and talk about the history and technology of the CatWalk system. What was the reason of creating this gait analysis system for rats and mice? How does it work?
using-video-tracking-operant-behavior

Using video tracking to study operant behavior in rodents

What is operant behavior? And how can we use software such as EthoVision XT to increase our understanding in the learning and memory processes involved in these studies?
