Elsevier (in the "Behavior Therapy" journal)
We developed a novel motion-tracking system to measure avoidance in children and adults. This publication covers some of the technical implementation work by PreviewLabs as well as findings from three different studies by Dr. Eli Lebowitz at the Yale Child Study Center. Taken together, these studies provide strong support for the promise of motion-tracking technology in behavioral avoidance research.
