Cat faces survey finally launched!

21 04 2017

Lauren has done a fantastic job finding more videos that met our careful positive affect/negative affect criteria, so that we now have 40 (20 in each of two randomly allocated surveys). These are from 40 independent cats, with active/inactive cats equally distributed over the two valence groups (a possible confound in our original pilot). The last couple of weeks saw some final extra checks that positive and negative videos did not differ in length or in quality (blurriness), and then we were *done*…. save for a 5 day hold-up from me while I stubbornly, irrationally held out for a video from Mouse to be fixed up and edited to be included.

So, here it is!
