Comparing different methods for mice behavioral analysis

Our project aims to develop different methods for the analysis of behavior in mice (in this case, exploration of an object) to determine which is the best approach to this kind of study. We were able to implement and compare three increasingly complex methods to determine exploration time: manual labeling; motion tracking and data analysis using a custom algorithm; training a Machine Learning classifier on our labeled data.

Diffusion MRI- From raw data to mapping brain connectomes.

The focus of this project was to combine, use and present a set of tools to organize, preprocess, analyze and visualize diffusion MRI data. The overarching goal is to investigate the consequences of cortical blindness on structural connectivity using diffusion MRI.
