FIM: Imaging & Tracking in Neuroscience

Imaging and analyzing the locomotion of semi-translucent animals such as Drosophila larvae or C. elegans has become an integral subject of biological research. However, acquiring contrast rich and high resolution measurements is still challenging. We have developed a new FTIR-based Imaging Method (FIM), which is used to detect the contact surface between the arena and the animals. FIM facilitates high-contrast and high-throughput behavioural analysis by eliminating many inaccuracies on a physical level. This system in combination with the associated tracking software FIMTrack is already used by many groups all over the world.
