We all agree that communication in the operating room is essential. It saves time and ensures a better quality of patient care. Using the WHO Surgical Safety Checklist supports this. How can we learn to use this checklist?
Nowadays, measuring heart rate and heart rate variability can be done remotely, without all kinds of devices being attached to the test participant, using remote photoplethysmography (RPPG). What is RPPG and how does it work?
For this year’s World Sight Day, we’re writing about visual impairments in children. Suzanne Verver and her colleagues focused on facilitating peer play with augmented toys.
Tube feeding has had a fascinating history, but there is still scope for innovation. Noldus will develop a system to measure its users' experience in the FoodFriend project.
How can we understand emotional reactivity in children with ADHD? In the current study, Tarle and her colleagues examined the relation between emotion regulation and working memory in children with and without this disorder.
Nutrition plays a vital role in children’s growth, development, and health. Researcher Walton and her team observed family mealtimes to gain a better understanding of children’s nutrition risk.
Hearing an infant cry can cause negative emotions, which can impact the way we respond. Researchers Riem and Karreman instructed parents to apply specific emotion regulation strategies in response to infant crying.
Measuring or assessing emotions is not always straightforward and easy. How do we view the nature of emotions in the first place?
