Understanding body movement in interaction

The analysis of kinesic behaviour with NEUROGES®-ELAN

The analysis of body motion in interaction remains a methodological challenge in gesture and multi-modal interaction research. While Birdwhistell’s original approach of kinesic recording (1952) was based on the identification of kines as isolated units of body motion, the method presented in this seminar operates with more complex phenomenological classes of body movements identified on neuropsychological grounds, as a reflection of mental processes.

In addition to the theoretical introduction to nonverbal behaviour analysis (among others dealing with behaviour segmentation, operationalization of body movement types and registration of body movement laterality), the seminar includes practical sessions with self-experience exercises and training of kinesic behaviour coding with NEUROGES®-ELAN (www.neuroges-bast.info). Furthermore, recent empirical data on kinesic behaviour and nonverbal interaction are presented. Participants can acquire a NEUROGES® rater certificate after successful exam.
