There is significant interest from the medical and
neuroscience communities for studying the behavior of zebrafish
larvae, particularly in the context of drug testing. In this paper, we
propose a method for analyzing the behavior of zebrafish larvae
in a high-throughput system using automatic image analysis.
Specifically, algorithms for estimating the poses of the larvae in
video recordings are presented. The pose estimation results are
subsequently used to estimate kinematic parameters, segment the
discretized movement into swim bouts (short bursts of movement)
and to categorize the swim bouts into a number of classes. The
distributions of bout classes are analyzed over time for different
doses of amphetamine and apomorphine and compared to control
groups. Preliminary results are presented indicating that the
proposed method is able to measure the effects of pharmacological
manipulations in the zebrafish larvae.
