TOM Freely Moving Monkey

Eye Tracking for freely behaving NHPs

The TOM – Freely Moving Monkey (TOM – FMM) system is a modular, fully-integrated device for the non-invasive measurement of behavior, pose and eye movements in freely behaving and moving non-human primates. The non-invasive, contact-free measurement principle requires no special accustoming from the animal and allows an easy combination with other neuroscientific techniques like telemetric electrophysiological recordings. Due to its modularity, it is ideally suited for basic behavioral or oculomotor research in non-human primates.

All systems consist of a fully equipped, high-quality and transparent cage for the temporary housing of the animal during the experiment and up to five high performance video cameras connected to a data recording system for time synchronized recordings for later offline analysis. The optional second module will soon be available and will automatically compute the animals position and pose online and provide this data via LAN or analog output for easy synchronization with other devices. The third module is currently in development and will upgrade the TOM – FMM to record the full 3-D gaze direction of the freely moving animal. This feature easily opens a rather unexplored research field, e.g. for the identification of neural correlates of oculomotor functions.

Key features:

Module 1: Behavioral Recording Setup

  • Rugged primate cage with transparent walls (1.5×0.9×1.3)m
  • Up to 5 high resolution and high speed video cameras with wide-angle lenses
  • High speed computer system with Microsoft Windows operating system for time synchronized video recording

Module 2: Behavioral Analysis Setup (soon)

  • Online body position & pose measurement (output via LAN or analog signal)

Module 3: Eye Tracking Setup (soon)

  • 4 Integrated high intensity infrared illumination units (940nm)
  • Thomas eye tracking software with face recognition and detection of eye movement parameters from a freely moving non-human primate

Easily upgrade your Setup with additional features at any time!
