Dedicated photoreceptor pathways in Drosophila larvae mediate navigation by processing either spatial or temporal cues

Nat Commun
PMCID: 5871836
PMID: 29593252
DOI: 10.1038/s41467-018-03520-5

Exploratory search during directed navigation in C. elegans and Drosophila larva

PMCID: 5662291
PMID: 29083306
DOI: 10.7554/eLife.30503.015

[…] A 5 MP CCD camera placed above the arena recorded crawling, with images acquired at 5 Hz. Movies were processed using the MAGAT Analyzer software (), which extracts the position and shape of each animal. Subsequent analysis using custom MATLAB scripts (source code download available, ) segmented the path of each crawling […]


TRPA1 mediates sensing the rate of temperature change in Drosophila larvae

Nat Neurosci
PMCID: 5191986
PMID: 27749829
DOI: 10.1038/nn.4416

[…] ated circuit responsible for voltage regulation. We used this apparatus to heat and cool an agarose surface for larval navigation. A video camera recorded the larvae behavior, and a computer program, MAGAT Analyzer, recognized the larvae in each frame.To automatically and objectively analyze the large volume of data, we wrote an algorithm that employed several parameters to discern rolling from no […]


Computations underlying Drosophila photo taxis, odor taxis, and multi sensory integration

PMCID: 4466338
PMID: 25945916
DOI: 10.7554/eLife.06229.017

[…] ht source, so stimulus presentation and images could be aligned to within the width of the strobe window (2–5 ms). Videos were recorded using custom software written in LABVIEW and analyzed using the MAGAT analyzer software package (). Further analysis was carried out using custom MATLAB scripts. gives the number of experiments, animals, turns, and head sweeps analyzed for each experimental condi […]


Reverse correlation analysis of navigation dynamics in Drosophila larva using optogenetics

PMCID: 4466337
PMID: 25942453
DOI: 10.7554/eLife.06225.015

[…] To extract LN models and predictions from each 20 min movie of 20–30 animals in each experiment, we followed this workflow:Acquire behavioral movies and used the MAGAT Analyzer to segment trajectories.Identify all runs and turns and their initial frame and duration.Obtain all light patterns preceding the initiation of each run and turn.Using the light patterns […]
