Hi Gökmen,

thanks for the info and sorry for the delay!
I'm sure your software would be very helpful if I had a rat setup 
running, but unluckily I haven't and so I'm looking for trajectory data 
from someone who has already recorded it. Preferrably the data would 
also contain place cell recordings of the rat.
I'll get trajectory data from someone else in a few days, but if you (or 
someone else?) has trajectories including place cell recordings I'd be 
most grateful if I could try my model on it.
Optimally the data would be some 20 minutes from rat or mouse exploring 
a new open field environment including place cell recordings.

Thanks a lot,
