EthoVision XT is great for tracking subjects in almost any behavioral task, but sometimes the subject can’t be “seen”, like in the Light-Dark box or Barnes Maze? No need to bury your face in your hands! Did you know that the software has you covered with Hidden Zones? Like regular Zones, Hidden Zones allow you to know where your subject is located, even if they can’t be seen or tracked. In this technical briefing, we’ll go over all the tips and tricks to make sure it works every time. No need to hide from achieving great science!


Matt Feltenstein

A native Mississippian, Matt received his doctorate from the University of Mississippi in Experimental Psychology/Behavioral Neuroscience with a focus on anxiety, depression, and pain. He then moved out of the “Deep South” to Charleston, SC to start a 3 year postdoc at MUSC examining the neurobiology and sex differences in psychostimulant addiction and relapse, afterwards moving into a 5 year research faculty position. Having decided it was time to take his behavior research experiences outside academia, Matt joined Noldus in 2012 as an Account Manager and Field Application Specialist. Since that time, Matt has traveled extensively throughout North America, logging over 1200 days of on-site travel for trainings, and countless hours of remote trainings and technical support. Outside of Noldus, Matt enjoys running, cycling, beer brewing, fermenting pretty much anything, and spending as much time as possible with his wife, Kate, and his son.
