Description

Research Films in Biology, Anthropology, Psychology, and Medicine is an encyclopedic account of the many uses of research films in the fields of biology, anthropology, psychology, and medicine. The book looks at cinemicrography, the making of human record films, and quantitative methods inherent in all scientific cinematography such as medical and X-ray cinematography.
This volume is organized into three sections encompassing 10 chapters and begins by considering the definition of research film and scientific cinematography, touching on topics such as the advantages and limitations of scientific cinematography and methods used to preserve and store the research film. The next chapters discuss the fundamental principles of cinemicrography as a research tool; the value of cinematography in biological investigations, including the study of animal behavior; and the theoretical and practical considerations in the use of cinematography in the human sciences, such as anthropology, psychology, and psychiatry. The book also methodically introduces the reader to medical applications of cinematography and the techniques of X-ray cinematography, and then concludes with relevant examples of the use of cinematography in medical research and diagnosis.
This book is a valuable resource for scientists and cinematographers.
