[…] demonstrate that the system is able to automatically detect non-social and social behavior of interacting mice. the system demonstrates a high level of tracking accuracy and clearly outperforms the miceprofiler, a recently proposed tracking software, which serves as benchmark for our experiments., the proposed method shows promising potential to automate behavioral screening of mice […]

[…] recordings. measure manually on the spectrogram window the peak frequency characteristics (e.g., start, end, maximum, minimum)., couple ultrasonic vocalization data and social interaction data (miceprofiler plugin from the icy platform22). make sure to synchronize as precisely as possible the audio and the video recordings as described in the protocol.encode the video of the social […]

[…] home cage of the subject mouse and subsequently analyzed for a period of 4 min. a detailed analysis of social interactions parameters was carried out using icy platform with the semiautomatic plugin miceprofiler software (de chaumont et al., ). social interaction sequences were scored after following parameters: (1) contact events (i, contact duration (threshold < 1 cm); ii, oral–oral; iii, […]

[…] be more sensitive to stress and as such, we wondered whether stress could worsen or prevent β2−/− mice social rigidity., in a recent work, we validated a software highlighting social behaviors (miceprofiler, de chaumont et al., ). in particular we investigated in detail the difference between the analyses conducted by two independent investigators from that using the software. we showed […]

DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0078460

[…] video analysis allows numerous behaviors to be detected much more quickly and objectively than behavioral analysis based on visual inspection . previous computerized video analysis systems (e.g., miceprofiler ; socialscan, cleversys; ethovision, noldus; videotrack, viewpoint) have used 2d top-view video recording and detected behaviors as follows: first, silhouettes of the animals […]
