Measuring or assessing emotions is not always straightforward and easy. How do we view the nature of emotions in the first place?
The International Conference on Applied Human Factors and Ergonomics (AHFE) is held annually. Here is why you should attend.
What predicts a sale, and what causes consumers to buy from a particular brand over another? To know how and why customers make decisions, you can take a deeper look at consumer behavior.
Research shows that early posture development is delayed in infants who are eventually diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Understanding these delays helps to improve early diagnosis and intervention.
Studies on eating behavior play an important role in preventing childhood obesity. Faith and his team examined the effectiveness of a family-based behavioral intervention to reduce eating pace.
Healthcare professionals working in an operating or emergency room, frequently deal with unpredictable situations in which they need to stay focused and think clearly. How do they manage that?
What is cognitive neuroscience? As my professor once said, it is the overlapping science of the ‘dry and the wet’ part of the brain.
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?

Rodent social behavior is important in research on neuropsychiatric disorders, but major limitations hamper progress.
So what kind of behavior can you measure? We haven't had time to follow all five behavior research tracks but here are a few highlights of the first conference day.
How zebrafish are helping us to discover the mechanisms behind this neurodegenerative disease.
Worm infections can cause cognitive problems. But it’s unclear if it affects learning, memory, or both.
It is pretty well-known that stress and anxiety have an effect on the immune system. This can be a real problem, especially in psychiatric disorders.
Preterm birth is a major problem in neonatal healthcare. Erik van Tilborg developed a new animal model to closely mimic this clinical situation, an important step in finding new treatment options.
A recent study shows that the use of anabolic steroids diminishes the positive effects of exercise in rats.
Knockout of Down syndrome gene in zebrafish leads to autistic-like behaviors: Though earlier knockout models in mice failed, researchers have developed a successful zebrafish model.
About zebrafish and their important role in finding a cure for Parkinson’s disease.
A zebrafish is not just a zebrafish. Strain differences in zebrafish behavior and physiology.
