Custom Instrumentation Solutions for Scientific and Engineering Challenges

Behavioral Experiments

Researchers studying behavioral characteristics of one organism or another need a way to monitor that behavior with precision and, in many cases, over long periods.

Specialized arenas and specialized monitoring methods are needed.

The IDL has worked with methods for mice, rats, fruit flies, fish, legless lizards, crickets, pill bugs, and humans.

These subjects are followed by sensing position with light beams, accelerometers, reflective tags, camera images, ultrasound, force and more.

Some of those are described in the links on the left-hand menu.
