OptoDrum - Excellence in optomotor tracking
The OptoDrum system from Striatech quantifies the visual abilities in mice based on their optomotor reflex. Mice (like other animals and humans) compensate for global image drift in the visual environment with reflexive eye and head movements. This behavior can be used to characterize the visual abilities of the animal, thus gaining information about its spatial acuity or contrast sensitivity. With our OptoDrum system, this is done in a fully automated way.
