The behavioral change in response to administration of testing
drug in laboratory animal can be assessed partly by monitoring
through the “AUTO-TRACK” animal activity meter. The system
has an interface to IBM PC/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 arevery unique for
AUTO-TRACK.
a. Distance traveled and pattern of movement data.
b. Separates ambulatory activity from total activity.
c. Provides zone monitoring capability.
d. Can be optionally equipped for animal Rotation Monitoring.
e. Monitors up to 16 cages simultaneously.
f. 15 infra-red photocell per axis.
g. Primary vertical sensor for rearing activity and secondary
   vertical sensor is for jumping.
h. Computer storage of processed and raw data.
