Artificially Intelligent Tools Capture Animal Movement

Algorithms for motion capture help neuroscientists dig into the question of how the brain produces behavior.

Traditionally, researchers have collected data on animal movements by clicking through video footage, frame by frame, and labeling the body parts of interest.

Another option is to glue markers onto an animal’s limbs and then use computer software to track them from video footage.
