The Ugo Basile Activity Cage records spontaneous activity in rats and mice (individual or groups). As the animal moves about a clear acrylic cage, it breaks one or more infrared beams. The beams are arranged in an array of emitters on one side of the cage, detectors on another. The lower IR array monitors horizontal movement while the upper IR array monitors vertical or rearing activity. The number of beam breaks is correlated with the amount of movement about the cage.
