The study of communication relies on investigations of human behavior

Human actions, thoughts, and feelings sit at either end of the communication process, underscoring the importance of investigating human behavior in order to generate an understanding of both how the message is sent, and also how it is received.

Understand the message

Take communications research a step further

Communication is largely dependent on human processes that are beyond the surface of what traditional research approaches can capture, necessitating a need to use methods that provide data at new depths.

The use of combined biosensors provides the ideal opportunity to explore how people perceive, respond, and act upon communications in a quantifiable way.

Examples of what clients are currently using iMotions for include:

  • Exploring how facial expressions impact communication
  • Investigating physician-patient communication behaviors
  • Automatically assessing interview-based skills
  • Using eye tracking to study the attentional processes that shape social network profile perception

iMotions is used at over 50 of the 100 top ranking universities in the world

How we act, think, feel, and perceive

Go deeper with physiological signals and data

Modern technology, in the form of eye trackers, EEG headsets, facial expression analysis software, and EDA devices, allows accurate quantification of physiological data related to how we send and receive messages.

Combining these modalities provides an even more nuanced understanding of the processes underlying thoughts and behavior.

The iMotions software is a complete experimental platform that allows the entire process to be run, from study design and stimulus presentation, to data collection and export or analysis.
