Abstract

This work describes an algorithm which is developed for automated analyses of LFP recordings and behavioural parameters in freely moving rats. Here, we present the algorithm applied on a rat model for OCD (Schedule-induced polydipsia, SIP). The algorithm allows to extract detailed behavioural parameters based on images of a top view camera. Changes during the disease conditioning period can be tracked and correlated with synchronously measured changes in the LFP recordings. We believe that such automated algorithms can highly contribute to a deeper understanding of recorded local field potentials and their link with pathological behaviour of individual animals.
