MULTI SENSOR – Multi Modal Recording System for Behavioral Tracking

Posted by RAMOT at Tel Aviv University Ltd.Responsive · Innovative Products and Technologies · Israel

Summary of the technology

The device, less than 10 grams weight, includes a camera, a microphone an accelerometer (9D sensor) and 2 analogue channels that can record physiological data such as neural activity or heart-rate. It can be easily carried by a rat.
Its design allows neuroscientists to enjoy the benefits of gathering the highest quality data in the optimal conditions.
• Minimized design – smallest of its kind – enables storing the data on the
animal without the need of transmitting it
• Ideal for laboratories studying animal behavior in a
confined environment or in the field.
• Sensory Information collected by the animal is gathered in video and audio
formats while information about the activity of the animal can be
followed by the accelerometer.
• Allows brain activity recordings

Description of the technology

It is clear today that brain activity of a restrained (or sedated) animal is completely different from that of a freely behaving animal.
That is why neuroscientists are seeking to find ways to study animals freely behaving on their natural grounds.
TAU's interdisciplinary research has led to the development of the MULTI SENSOR – Multi Modal Recording System for small animals, which is designed to enable recording the world as the animal senses it, without the need of transmitting the information.

SMALL IN SIZE AND WIDE IN FUNCTIONALITIES

The system has been developed by Dr. Yossi Yovel from the Department of Zoology and the Sagol School of neuroscience and Dr. Gabor Kosa from the School of Mechanical Engineering. The device, less than 10 grams weight, includes a camera, a microphone an accelerometer (9D sensor) and 2 analogue channels that can record physiological data such as neural activity or heart-rate. It can be easily carried by a rat.
