Researchers often need to explain complex behaviors tied to emotional response. Collecting good emotional data and translating that data into a conclusion is critical when understanding and FaceReader affectiive responseexplaining behavior.

One way to collect and interpret facial expressions data is through FaceReader Software. FaceReader is an emotion reading software that analyzes facial movements to classify subject response. Facial expressions can be classified as happy, sad, scared, disgusted, surprised, angry, contempt, and neutral.

Join Frazer Findlay, CEO of BIOPAC, to learn the differences between Facial Coding using FaceReader and Facial EMG. Frazer will explain the distinctions of facial coding and why you would use a software like FaceReader versus collecting fEMG data using the facial muscles.

What You Will Learn
