New tracking method enables measurement of neuronal activity during the movement of individual body parts

A team led by Artur Schneider and Prof. Dr. Ilka Diester from the Institute of Biology III and Prof. Dr. Thomas Brox from the Department of Computer Science at the University of Freiburg have developed a new system that records the 3D movement of freely nameable body points: "FreiPose" uses several cameras and a special network architecture to recognize defined body points and track them. The method enables researchers to exclude movement influences of certain body parts in their analysis that are not of interest. The group presents their new method in the journal Neuron.
