Cognition and memory studies are invaluable in research areas such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and Huntington’s disease. Down syndrome, stroke, semantic dementia – and the list goes on. Renowned video tracking software EthoVision® XT is here to help get the most out of neurobehavioral studies in animal models.
Processing information and the ability to recall or retrieve that information at a later time are cognitive functions that are widely studied in various areas of neuroscience. Animal models are used to investigate the effects of brain damage, neurological diseases, and novel compounds on cognition.
EthoVision XT is the perfect tool to track animal behavior, activity, and movement. Noldus also offers additional equipment to make full automation of your research possible. We also offer a wide range of standard and custom high quality mazes to create a solution that suits your research.
Prof. Roberto Rimondini is a neuropsychopharmacologist at the Department of Medical and Clinical Sciences DIMEC, Alma Mater Studiorum Bologna (University of Bologna, Italy). He has been using EthoVision XT video tracking software since its DOS version! He finds it so easy to use, it’s ‘dummy proof’!
Watch the video to learn more about why he chooses Noldus' tools.
“EthoVision XT has dramatically improved my ability to incorporate extensive behavioral testing with one group of animals. It reduces the time needed to record and analyze behaviors while allowing for much more extensive analysis of behavior.”
Dr. M. Hyer | Virginia Commonwealth University, USA
EthoVision XT is a software platform. You can start with Base, which is all you need to perform experiments with one animal (rodent, fish, or any other) in one arena per trial (such as a water maze test). Use different modules, such as social interaction or multiple arenas, to create a solution that fits your research perfectly.
