An unsupervised learning approach for tracking mice in an enclosed area

BMC Bioinformatics
PMCID: 5445447
PMID: 28545524
DOI: 10.1186/s12859-017-1681-1

[…] as illustrated in frame 705 and, moreover, enables to estimate viewing direction during occlusions. Fig. 9 The tracking performance of the proposed unsupervised learning approach was compared to the MiceProfiler [, ]. For this purpose, the MiceProfiler was carefully configured according to the tutorial provided by the authors. We empirically determined binary threshold and mouse model scale param […]


Recording Mouse Ultrasonic Vocalizations to Evaluate Social Communication

PMCID: 4927756
PMID: 27341321
DOI: 10.3791/53871

[…] acts are considered apart (e.g., 19,27,34,35). Recent analysis methods now provide a semi-automatic detailed characterization of the social events and sequences of events during an interaction (using MiceProfiler for instance)36, as well as the possibility to combine this analysis with data from audio recordings. The main advantage of this method is to provide a comprehensive view of the social co […]


Gender Dependent Evaluation of Autism like Behavior in Mice Exposed to Prenatal Zinc Deficiency

PMCID: 4776245
PMID: 26973485
DOI: 10.3389/fnbeh.2016.00037

[…] 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, oral […]


Acute stress in adulthood impoverishes social choices and triggers aggressiveness in preclinical models

PMCID: 4285129
PMID: 25610381
DOI: 10.3389/fnbeh.2014.00447

[…] y would 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 that […]


A 3D Video Based Computerized Analysis of Social and Sexual Interactions in Rats

PLoS One
PMCID: 3813688
PMID: 24205238
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0078460

[…] zed 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 in the video […]


Light microscopy applications in systems biology: opportunities and challenges

PMCID: 3627909
PMID: 23578051
DOI: 10.1186/1478-811X-11-24

[…] ease progression [,]. Recent progress in image analysis has also been useful in the behavioral studies of mice; video tracking can be used to analyze the explorative behavior of mice []. For example, MiceProfiler is an open-source software that tracks and models the behavior of untagged mice [].The in vivo observation of live neurons is a useful approach because these cells perform their basic fun […]
