Measuring locomotion in the Joystick? Something seems to happen…

Example of ON/OFF traces.  And then the wiggling was measured in both conditions (with and without light). It seems like they move more when they are in the light side. I also did measure the derivative with a tau=2 (in case the sampling is over the temporal frequency of fly behavior)

Optimizing the Joystick with Gr28bd+TrpA1>Chrimson

It seems that there is something more there. There were 5 batches of 3 flies per side reinforced. I put the intensity higher than ever before. I will try to get the maximum intensity for the next experiment and see what it looks like.

Looking for the phenotype in Gr28bd+TrpA1>Chrimson

I have decreased the light intensity to around half of what it previously was. The result do not show any clear phenotype. The ‘logical PI’ looks kind of inverted because I actually have plotted it so that positive means light, negative means no light. A total of 30 flies were tested: some of them with right, other with left reinforcement

Example of a trace within the different trainning/test segments

Inter sampling interval just to check

10 experiment segments with alternating no reinforcement/reinforcement

The same as above but for the 3 platforms that ran in the same batch

Trace dynamics when the light is ON (blue) and OFF (red). Working on nicer visualization in general
