Predicting Activity Onset

Identification of onset times permits a simple least-squares prediction of the onset time for the following day. This feature aids in determining the appropriate timing of stimuli during an ongoing experiment. The predicted onset time is displayed graphically (blue symbol) and numerically in a text display (not shown). In this example, a least-squares fit was set up for the last 30 days of activity. The PREDICT function then identifies the probable onset time for the following day at 2:16 AM.
