The automatic Rat Behavior Recognition accurately, reliably, and tirelessly recognizes ten rat behaviors.
If you are interested in mouse behavior, please see this page.
Behavior recognition is based on several factors. These include the location and movement of the nose point, center point, and tail base of the rat; its body shape and contour; and information about the cage in which testing takes place (such as where the walls, the feeder, and the drinking bottle are located). Motion statistics, intensity, and periodicity are also taken into account.
Additional automatically recognized behaviors
In addition to the ten behaviors included in the software, you can also order custom-tailored Behavior Recognition software which automatically detects exactly those behaviors of rats you are interested in. This is a consultancy service; please contact us for more information.
