Paper Abstract

In this study, we demonstrate an automated data acquisition/analysis platform for both long-term motion tracking and functional brain imaging in freely moving mice. Our system utilizes a fiber-bundle based fluorescence microscope for 24 hours imaging of cellular activities within the brain while also monitoring corresponding animal behaviors using a NIR camera. Synchronized software and automation of analysis allow quantification of all animal behaviors and their brain activities over extended periods of time. Our platform can be used for interrogation of the brain activities in different behavioral states and is also well-suited for longitudinal studies of cellular activities in freely moving animals.
