I have a lot of videos that need to be analyzed. There is mice behavior recorded. The mice are all dark and have a light rectangle at their cheek. Moreover there are different angles from which you see the mouse in the video because of mirrors and the mouse moving around. I need to know the timepoints and how often they are touching the cheek with the paw. I am thinking, if it even would be possible to use ImageJ to aid me in this. I am not sure how to approach the problem. pattern recognition, tracking or a form of colocalisation…does anyone has an idea? I know that the avi video files will need preprocessing and that it probably will be a lot of work.
Have you looked into Kinovea or some other motion tracking software?
thank you, unfortunately Kinovea did not work for me. Icy could solve parts of the problem, stil trying.
