Belfast Naturalistic Database

Overview
Description:

The basic unit of the database is a clip, which is an audiovisual
recording of an emotional episode, drawn from two main sources. People
were recorded discussing emotive subjects either with each
other, or with one of the research team. The database also includes recorded
extracts from television programs where members of the public
interact in a way that appears essentially spontaneous.
