焦虑抑郁行为实验

随着鱼类研究的逐渐增加,多个用于啮齿类动物研究的实验范例被转化成斑马鱼研究,如旷场实验及明暗箱。而这类研究都面临着一个共同问题一就是对快速移动或不规则运动的动物保持紧密追踪,而动物运动轨迹跟踪系统能够准确检测并且跟踪鱼类,提供研究所需的独立变量,如移动距离,速度以及在水槽不同区域花费的时间。结合多观察区域模块,你可以同时跟踪多个设置,节省了时间和精力。如果您需要追踪到动物的三维轨迹,可以增添track 3D 模块。

研究范例

在斑马鱼潜底试验中,潜底行为和游动到上层水域的时间是评价应激和焦虑的重要指标,或者说是抗焦虑药或致焦虑物质效果评价的重要指标。另一个范例是旷场实验,类似于啮齿动物研究,可以测试出鱼类的趋触性。其他研究范例如明暗箱测试以及捕食者逃避测试。
