Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A simple video position-digitizer has been developed for studying the movement patterns of small animals. This report provides a complete procedure for constructing the circuit, which when used in conjunction with a conventional video camera and an IBM PC compatible computer, automatically digitizes and records the path of a dark animal against a light colored background for relatively long periods of time.
