The Science of Human Behaviour

my name is Martin Metzmacher. I was a Research Master student at the Behavioural Science Institute of the Radboud University in Nijmegen. My research interest back then was diagnostic decision making in expert psychotherapists. I believe that more adequate research methods can give valuable insights into expert decision making and the effects on treatment outcome.

After finishing my study I am now an entrepreneur. Find out more about my business at find out more about my person on

Often things come to my mind that I want to share and discuss with others. This blog makes it possible to transcend time and space in the discussion about new ideas in behavioural science. I hope you enjoy reading and maybe you can take out some of it for yourself. In any way I will be happy to receive your feedback, so feel free to leave a comment on a subject of your interest.

  1. Hello Martin, In your article you mention Staple et al. What is the reference for this ? Book and year ?You refer: Staple et al. (2002) elaborated on this idea and presented faces to participants on a computer screen. The faces were showing emotional expressions and had clear gender cues. What they found was that when things were presented very quickly people only picked up the emotional information (30ms).
