Psychology

Gathering data 4

Overview

Studying the complexities of human behaviour, whether in the lab or in natural environments, requires data collection methods that are discrete as well as accurate. 

Tracksys offer a number of solutions for both qualitative and quantitative behavioural observation and controlled experiments, as well as teaching tools for lectures and lab sessions.
 
These are centred around The Observer XT for coding behaviour live or from video and integrating other data sources such as emotion measurement, physiology and eye tracking
