Psychology Research Software
with iMotions: world’s leading human behavior software
iMotions is used at 50% of the world’s leading universities
We’re proud to help them stay on top.
Our human behavior research software is designed to help you create a stronger understanding of how humans act, think, feel, and perceive.
Biosensors in Psychology
Cognitive Processes · Emotions · Decision-making · Neuropsychology
Understanding the multiple facets of the human experience requires multiple approaches. For example, testing potential priming effects – are there differences in attention? Do exhibited emotions change? Are there subtle physiological responses? Or with memory tests – does sustained attention alter the outcome? Is this impacted by psychophysiological stress?
Psychology researchers now have the tools available to answer all of these questions within single experimental paradigms – creating a truly holistic understanding of human cognition. iMotions provides an efficient system for handling data from single or multiple biosensors – allowing you to collect and understand data that matches the intricacy of the questions you’re facing.
The Nerve Center
For great psychology research
iMotions provides the framework for great science to happen. Build the experimental sequence, present stimuli in any format, and collect data from almost any device. Export data as you need, or produce analyses with open R notebooks directly in iMotions. iMotions functions like an extra member of your team – helping you streamline your research, work with sensor technology across studies, and even allows for more cross-laboratory collaborations thanks to the flexibility of the software.
iMotions is used at over 800 universities worldwide
Psychology Research Applications with iMotions
Understand humans better
Biosensors make human behavior measurable, in almost any situation. Despite their established use within psychology research, a core difficulty remains with their synchronization within experimental paradigms. iMotions provides a single software solution for controlling the experimental process, executing studies, and synchronizing multiple data streams. iMotions also has robust compatibility with external psychology stimulus presentation and analysis tools like MATLAB, SPSS, E-Prime, Psychtoolbox, and PsychoPy.
Psychology researchers are currently using iMotions for:
Key features to simplify and amplify your work
Connect. Record. Process.
Explore Integrated Hardware
Seamlessly combine research-grade sensors from our partners
Whether for clinical psychology, cognitive neuropsychology, organizational psychology, or other disciplines, high-end sensor technology integrates natively with iMotions, and our flexible API broadens the integration possibilities for third-party sensors. The iMotions software is adaptable to your research parameters, making it much easier to work with different sensors or sensor combinations across studies.
Objective Data for Understanding Emotional Expressions
iMotions helps Oxford University address entirely new areas of research into emotions. By utilizing an objective and automated system for measurements of facial expressions, Dr. Danielle Shore is able to rapidly explore emotional reactions in game theory contexts.
Research made possible with iMotions
Northeastern University, Janssen Research & Development, Duke University School of Medicine, University of California San Francisco, and the University of Washington – Manfredonia et al.
Researchers used iMotions to better understand facial expression recognition abilities in children with autism.
