Behavioural tracking software
Features > Results
ANY-maze can report literally hundreds of different measures for every test
But generally you'll select just a handful that
are relevant to the experiment you're performing - as in the image
on the left.
You can change the reported measures at any time and ANY-maze will immediately update all affected reports - there's no delay and the tests aren't re-tracked, or even re-analysed, the data just appears.
ANY-maze can also analyse test results across time
It's easy to break tests into time segments of any duration and compare
the results between them. You can also home in on different parts of a test,
for example the 30 second period after the animal first exited a specific zone (as in
the image on the right), and compare results for these periods too.
And you can adjust analysis across time at any point, whether before, during or after the tests are run.
Visualising where the animals went
ANY-maze can plot the track of the animal through the apparatus, as shown in the
image on the left. It can also also generate heat-maps (like the image on the right),
which indicate how much time the animal spent in different locations.
In fact, heat maps can be generated for individual tests and also for groups of animals, showing the average time the group spent in different parts of the apparatus - this can be a great way to visualise differences between the groups.
All the data ANY-maze records is available to you
Usually you will want to look at the results of the measures that ANY‑maze
calculates for every test - for example, the distance the animal travelled.
However, there maybe occasions when you want access to the actual data ANY-maze
recorded during the test, such as the x,y coordinates of the animal's centre
This data can easily be viewed, copied to the clipboard, or saved in a variety of file formats - including XML, which is ideal for performing additional analysis in programs like MATLAB.
