Presentation

COMPULSE represents the software component of the BIOSEB PHECOMP system designed for the assessment of compulsive behavior in rodents.

Operating principle

This software monitors up to 12 PHECOMP cages for data acquisition, storage and analysis. Up to 4 external units for food or drink by cage can be set (user-defined combination and name) ensuring an optimal flexibility for performing a wide variety of tests related to Food & Drink Intake studies

The evolution of food and drink intake consumption, beams break activity, rearing and current animal position are displayed in real-time during the data acquisition process. The data are stored in two data files: MTB file opened from the Compulse software for Intake & Meal Pattern Analysis and TAC file opened from the Actitrack software for Global Activity, Tracking & Rearing Analysis.

A powerful analysis module provides tables with the calculation of total and accumulated intake for each dispenser in each cage as well as all the standard data for meal pattern analysis. The analysis window and subinterval are defined by the user. Data can also be displayed graphically. All the tables and graphs are easily exportable in Excel or BMP formats, respectively.

Parameters Measured

• Food or drink consumption by user-defined interval of time
• Intake accumulated curves
• Meal pattern analysis

Domains of application

• FOOD-DRINK INTAKE AND METABOLISM:
- Diabetes
- Anemia
- Hyper / hypo-thyroidism
- Obesity
- Anorexia

• LOCOMOTOR ACTIVITY AND EXPLORATION
- Spontaneous activity
- Parkinson’s disease
- Huntington’s disease
- Hyperactivity syndrome

Key features:

• Allows automated standard experiment
• Different possibilities of control for opening and closing the doors (manual or automated)
• Different possibilities for animal detection (photoelectrical cells, video-tracking...)
• Mounted on a tripod with adjustable height
