PL Academic Research
This interdisciplinary volume on nonverbal behavior research, edited by Lausberg, introduces the NEUROGES coding system to clearly parameterize studied behavior. Part I gives a review of the topic, discussing observed patterns, descriptive differences between scientific disciplines, and the relationship of movement behavior to communication. Part II describes and validates the NEUROGES system. Sections III-V discuss how to apply the coding system in concert with the annotation tool ELAN, addressing technical aspects as well as experimental design and interrater agreement. The final section treats analysis and evaluation of data at the conceptual and computing levels.
