Ordering LimeLight

LimeLight has 2 different hardware configurations. The 1-camera system can be used to record 1 to 4 animals at once. For multiple animals, each one is placed in a separate arena in one quadrant of the image. The 4-camera system is also used to record up to 4 animals, but each arena is viewed by a separate camera. The additional hardware adds to the system cost, but the 4-camera setup reduces image distortion since each arena is viewed from its center and not from a corner. In addition, it increases flexibility in the placement of arenas. With each system, trials in each arena can be started and stopped together or independently. Trials can be started from the keyboard or from remotes switches (provided at no extra charge on request).

Order WaterMaze, LimeLight and/or FreezeFrame together as a single, cost-effective system that will perform almost any behavioral task.
