1 An electromyogram (EMG) measures the electrical activity of muscles at rest and during contraction. Nerve conduction studies measure how well and how fast the nerves can send electrical signals. [Webmd.com]

2 Eye tracking is the measurement of eye activity. Where do we look? What do we ignore? When do we blink? How does the pupil react to different stimuli? [Eyetracking.com]

3 One of the great advantages of the virtual world is that you can quickly change things like the layout of a shop or the design of packaging, without the time and expenses of altering things in the real world. Virtual Shop is a setup that you can use to test the effects of things. [Noldus.com]

4 Thermographic cameras detect radiation in the infrared range of the electromagnetic spectrum (roughly 900–14,000 nanometers or 0,9–14 µm) and produce images of that radiation, called thermograms. Since infrared radiation is emitted by all objects with a temperature above absolute zero according to the black body radiation law, thermography makes it possible to see one's environment with or without visible illumination. The amount of radiation emitted by an object increases with temperature; therefore, thermography allows one to see variations in temperature. [Wikipedia.com]

5 Automated behavior recognition, like gesture recognition, uses computer vision, marker-free tracking, no on-body sensors or tags using single or multiple video cameras. [Noldus.com]

6 Analyze sound, select calls visually in a spectrogram and categorize similar calls based on frequency, amplitude, duration, and time gaps. [Noldus.com]

7 Facial expression analysis refers to computer systems that attempt to automatically analyze and recognize facial motions and facial feature changes from visual information. [Ri.cmu.edu]

8 Tactile feedback provides a very intuitive and personal communication channel to users, using vibration electronics integrated in wearable textile. The systems can be used for feedback, communication, alarming and conditioning. [Noldus.com]
