The behavioral change in response to drug in laboratory animals 
can be assessed partly by monitoring through the "Auto-Track" 
animal Activity Meter. The system has an interface to IBMPC/AT 
compatible computers that provides complete automation of data 
collection. It also provides 'zoning' capability and monitors 
subject entries and latencies for up to multiple user-defined 
cage areas. The following features are very unique for 
Auto-Track.
1. Monitors upto 16 cages simultaneously.
2. Distance travelled and pattern of movement data.
3. Separates ambulatory activity from total activity.
4. Provides zone monitoring capability.
5. Can be optionally equipped for animal rotation monitor.
6. Computer storage of processed and raw data.
7. 15 infra-red photocell per axis.
8. Primary vertical sensor for rearing activity and secondary 
vertical sensor is for jumping.
