From a lab animal perspective: real-time smart cameras for head and eye tracking
As popular models of cognitive function, rodents are often used for understanding tasks such as perception, memory and decision-making. To properly study these abilities, recordings on conscious animals engaged in these behaviours is necessary. Furthermore, in order to relate it to the underlying brain activity, it's necessary to track real-time motor behaviour. The EU-funded SMARTLABCAM project will develop innovative, minimally invasive and user-friendly head- and eye-tracking devices. It aims to migrate the tracking algorithms developed for the LEARN2SEE project to real-time smart cameras, processing head/eye video streams. The project hopes to transform these tracking devices into a commercial product to support the growing market of neurophysiology laboratories that are using rodents as model organisms.
