Noldus Customer Stories

Customer stories

A large number of behavioral research labs from all over the world, all recently built and in active use, take you on a tour and show you how they designed their rooms, what equipment they chose, and which software tools are used for data collection and analysis.

This section covers a wide range of application domains, organizations, and technology: from neurobiology to experimental psychology, and from rodents to zebrafish. Enjoy the tours!

Dr. van Wingerden: "We hope to contribute to the development of potential interventions."

At the Heinrich Heine University in Düsseldorf, Germany, PI Dr. Marijn van Wingerden and his PhD student Sander van Gurp study social learning behavior in rats. Their Social Rat Lab uses EthoVision XT and UltraVox XT for their behavioral studies.

Dr. Price: "I think the CatWalk is probably one of the most sophisticated pieces of equipment that I have seen."

NeuroPore Therapies (San Diego, California) does important research in the field of neurodegenerative disorders. Dr. Diana Price, Dr. Asma Khan and Robert Johnson are currently using CatWalk XT to study Parkinson’s disease.

Dr. Prévôt: "If therapeutics work in rodents, they can potentially be beneficial for human pathology."

Dr. Thomas Prévôt from the University of Toronto is developing a new tool to assess anxiety-like and depressive-like behavior in rodents, in order to understand the underlying mechanisms of chronic stress exposure and how it changes either behavior but also molecular and cellular pathology, to mimic the human depression.

Dr. Semeniuk: "EthoVision XT helps us to quantify behavior, not just qualify behavior."

Dr. Christina Semeniuk, associate professor at the University of Windsor, is studying the behaviors of multiple fresh water fish species in the Great Lakes. EthoVision XT is helping her lab with reliability.

Dr. Do Rego: "Automatic measurements makes us gain in quality."

Dr. Jean-Claude do Rego and Dr. Jean-Luc do Rego of the Behavioral Analysis Facility of the University of Rouen (Service Commun d’Analyse Comportementale, SCAC), are evaluating the behavioral and functional activities of new pharmacological drugs.

Dr. Rimondini: "EthoVision XT is for dummies."

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!

Dr. van den Bos: "I definitely would recommend Noldus' tools to others."

Dr. Ruud van den Bos talks about his work in neurobiology and experimental psychology, and how zebrafish studies contribute to his field of research. He is experienced with DanioVision and EthoVision XT, and explains why good tools are important for reliability and reproducibility in zebrafish experiments.
