Noldus Animal Behavior Video Tracking System

Purchased with funds provided from Tech Fee, the installation of the Noldus video tracking system in the Animal Behavior Lab in Peoples building provides students with a tool that automates acquisition of large amounts of data on animal movements and interactions.  The system can track a single or multiple test subjects. Because this system is also used professionally, students can gain valuable experience on its implementation while still in school, leading to better opportunities after graduation.

A student introduces a test subject (spider) into the observation arena.             Data collection and monitoring is controlled from the Noldus workstation.
