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 explaining behavior. One way to collect and interpret facial expressions data is through FaceReader Software, 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 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. He’ll present a live demo of the software needed to collect facial expression data.
What You Will Learn
Difference between Facial Coding and Facial EMG plus advantages and disadvantages of each
Methodology for collecting data
How to bring data into AcqKnowledge real-time and seamlessly

The best ways to set up participants to record good data for life science research and teaching labs. – Which electrode? – Which lead? – Do I need Ground (GND)? – Best placement? – Best recording system?
We’re turning on the web cam and showing you LIVE how to best prep participants for a variety of life science signals and measurements.
Effects of MDMA on attention to positive social cues for behavioral disorders The psychostimulant drug 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA) reportedly produces distinctive feelings of empathy, closeness with others and increased social behavior. Researchers are exploring the potential of this chemical for treatment of psychiatric disorders, such as autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). This […]
