Primer: Learning structure in mouse behavior using motion sequenceing (MoSeq)

March 20, 2019
Datta Lab, Harvard Medical School

Understanding how the brain governs behavior is a fundamental goal of modern neuroscience; however, our ability measure behavior lags far behind our ability to manipulate genes involved in typical brain function, or measure neural activity. Here, we will learn about the general workflow of a novel machine vision and learning technique — called Motion Sequencing (MoSeq) — designed to objectively quantify 3D mouse behavior on a sub-second timescale. Moreover, we will discuss the technique’s current and future uses in addressing questions in behavioral neuroscience.
