Quantifying animal behavior in neuroscience research is essential for properly interpreting results, ensuring reproducibility of experiments, and providing a more complete picture of the genotype-phenotype relationship in the nervous system context. Because high-throughput experiments increasingly require automated acquisition and analysis of behavioral data, multimedia systems are becoming a vital part of the behavioral neuroscientist's tool kit.
