Zebrafish research in the spotlight

Webinar

Recent discoveries, methodologies, challenges in zebrafish research, and how to tackle them. We invited renowned behavioral researchers Dr. Christian Tudorache and Dr. Ruud van den Bos to tell us all about these topics in this webinar:

  • Coping with the clock - a link between biological clock function and personality types - By Dr. Christian Tudorache
  • Biomedical research in zebrafish (Danio rerio): sources of variation and how to deal with them - By Dr. Ruud van de Bos
 

How to use the Track Editor in EthoVision XT

Technical briefing

In an ideal EthoVision world, there would be no need for the Track Editor. All samples would stay perfectly on the correct body points, there would be no nose-tail swaps and multiple animals in the same arena would never swap identities.

However, if tracking issues still occur, the Track Editor is a useful tool to correct errors. In this webinar you learn:

  • The main causes of tracking issues.
  • What you can use the Track Editor for.
  • How to use the Track Editor.
 

Boost analysis capability in EthoVision XT with JavaScript variables

Technical briefing

EthoVision XT has a wealth of built-in analysis variables that help you interpret your data. Variables like Speed, Heading, and Movement are used by almost all EthoVision XT users. However, sometimes you wish the software could do more, especially in complex applications.

In this technical briefing, we take a look at how you can expand the analysis capability in EthoVision XT by creating custom variables with the JavaScript programming language.

Tools for preclinical COVID-19 research

Technical briefing

In this technical briefing, Dr. Lucas Noldus reviews relevant animal models, behavioral and physiological biomarkers related to COVID-19, and how these can be measured automatically using appropriate sensors and software.

 

Automated Rodent Behavior Recognition with EthoVision XT

Technical briefing

In this technical briefing, you will learn more about EthoVision XT’s module Automatic Behavior Recognition: how it works and what you can use it for.
