Baby and Behavioral Observation Lab
Synchronized multi-camera video-audio-recording allows us to monitor a wide range of behaviors, from simple actions of infants, for example in studies on imitation, to more complex problem-solving behaviors and verbal responses of children and adults.
Our labs are equipped with four high-speed, high-resolution cameras (full HD, frame rates up to 100Hz). The remotely controlled camera enables wide-angle recording, providing a comprehensive overview of the entire experimental chamber. The three freely movable cameras allow highly flexible monitoring of dyadic interactions. Synchronized recording of all camera perspectives using specialized software enables fine-grained behavioral coding with a high time resolution. A ceiling-mounted boundary microphone covers the lab as a whole. In addition, three wide range unidirectional microphones enable audio recordings of each interaction partner. Depending on the respective study, mobile devices for motion capturing, peripheral psychophysiological assessments, as well as with tailor-made apparatuses manufactured in the Faculty workshop can be added to the lab setting.
