## EMD with ICA to one sample of torque trace

on Monday, March 19th, 2018 2:35 | by Christian Rohrsen

Trace segment from Maye et al. 2007 in the uniform arena

Trace after filtering by selecting the first 8 IMFs (intrinsic mode functions) from EMD (empirical mode decomposition). Since the signal should be quite clean I do not take out the first IMFs. The last IMFs, however, are too slow and change the baseline to much

Some examples of the IMFs obtained from EMD:

Since this is separating behavior adapting to the data intrinsic time scales I am now thinking of analysing with the SMAP algorithm to see if the behavior is more or less nonlinear at certain time scales.

In addition, I have thought of using ICA (Independent component analysis), that is an algorithm famous for the blind source separation problem by extracting the most independent signals from the input signals (in this case the IMFs which are different time scales of the behavior). So the ICs should consist of mixes of different time scales that are correlated together and thus belong (but not necessarily) to the same action/movement module/… Here a few ICs (from 10). My idea is that muscles might coordinate independently between ICs but coordinated within ICs. However to prove that is not that easy I guess

## quality test before strokelitude experiments

on Monday, January 29th, 2018 12:40 | by Christian Rohrsen

Some traces from this week just so that you have an idea how do they look like. To me they are not the optimal traces I expected. But one can see some signal there. I will start the screen hoping to get enough good traces without too much work.

what do you think is the best quality control for accepting a trace for the analysis or not. I was thinking the 3D mapping gives a good hint but without quantification.

In addition I was writting to Andi Straw to solve the issue of running two cameras in the same computers, but now answer

## Better analysis of slope dependence on flight length and further insights in the SMAP code

on Monday, December 4th, 2017 1:02 | by Christian Rohrsen

This is another way of showing how the slope of the SMAP analysis varies with length. I have choped the time series in 4 chunks and saw what was the slope for the chunks and for the whole time series. I think this is the best statistical way of doing it, it should not depend on what line was tested. I cannot see any effect.

Here below is just to show what I found out in the code. What I thought that theta was controlling for nonlinearity in the model, for me it seems rather a control for under- overfitting in the model. So I might need to read the paper and see what do they say, and if it is the same as what I found out in the code.

## Do not agree with Sathish?

on Monday, November 27th, 2017 2:43 | by Christian Rohrsen

So this is the final graph assuming that 20Hz is the sampling rate. Sathish was not sure what it was and he said he will check.

To have a better overview how the length of the flight compares with the slope obtained from the SMAP. There is no big correlation whatsoever with around 100 flies. Sathish found this in his thesis with data from seventy something WTB, but to me it seems like an anecdotal result.

Here the same as above, just for showing the fit line.

## All sathish data analysis

on Monday, November 20th, 2017 1:47 | by Christian Rohrsen

This are the results of all of the flies analyzed from Sathish. I just need to know the frequency of the acquisition to exclude the ones that are below 6 minutes.

## Sathish data

on Monday, November 6th, 2017 1:37 | by Christian Rohrsen

I have analyzed the c105+c232 > tnt data from Sathish. There are a total of 43 flies, although many of them only flew for a few minutes, and therefore should be discarded. Below all of the individual fly scores. I need to analyse now the other groups. This is btw the modified data set, whatever that means for Sathish.

This is a video of the projection from the torque data from Maye et al. 2007. The spikes are not that well sorted in this case as in the Strokelitude. I guess this is because the spikes do not look so smooth.

## Recurrence quantitative analysis

on Monday, October 30th, 2017 11:43 | by Christian Rohrsen

This is an example of a recurrence plot analysis. In the first graph is shown in single point in time in the optimal embedding dimension and the distance to the other points. For the recurrence plot analysis it is needed to put a threshold to make it binary. This is the second graph. From this second graph one can count many parameters like determinism, laminarity and so on. From what I see, the plots from the Strokelitude as well as Bjoern´s flight simulator in Maye et al 2007 show similar pattern (kind of crosses with vertical and horizontal lines).

This is a measure of the Recurrence Quantitative Analysis of different groups. Recurrence threshold is a tricky and to some extent subjective measure, so this is why I tried two different ones.

DET: recurrence points that form a diagonal line of minimal length, the more diagonal, the more deterministic.

LMAX: Max diagonal line length or divergence. Sometimes considered as an estimator of max. Lyapunov exponent

ENT: Shannon entropy reflects the complexity of the system

TND: info about stationarity (trend)

LAM: Laminarity is related to laminar phases in the system (intermittency). It is tallied as vertical lines over a threshold.

TT: Trapping time, measuring the average length of vertical lines. Related to laminarity.

## SMAP results

on Monday, October 9th, 2017 2:34 | by Christian Rohrsen

These are the results of the SMAP for the TNTxWTB. I also have done a few for the c105;;c232xWTB but there is not much to say. I would say that the cleanest lines show a bigger slope, but prone to subjectiveness.

In addition, I have done some animations of the attractors that I have posted on slack because of size.

## Attractors for c105;;c232>TNT

on Monday, October 2nd, 2017 5:35 | by Christian Rohrsen

This is what I showed about one fly from this line showing the attractor.

This graph is what I forgot to show in the lab meeting. There are the 6 best traces from this same line. All of them selected ad hoc subjectively. The three best of them to my eyes are exactly the three above in the graph (v8-this one is the one shown in the picture with the attractors-,v4,v2). What does this means? the ones with better traces (subjectively) have higher offset in the phi, this means that they are more predictable overall (maybe because more resolution?). In addition, they show higher slopes which means more nonlinearity.

## Measuring Wingstroke Amplitude with Strokelitude (V)

on Monday, December 14th, 2015 2:42 | by Pablo Martinez

For a further data analysis, we should have a minimum number of samples. During the last week, I have been measuring the wingstroke amplitude of the flies, to get at least 10 samples of each one(two controls and the experimental line). Here three examples of the different lines:

Males WTB x C105;;C232 (control)

Males UAS-TNT-E x C105;;C232

Males UAS-TNT-E x WTB (control)
