An Imaging System for C. elegans Behavior

Methods Mol Biol. 2015;1327:199-207. doi: 10.1007/978-1-4939-2842-2_14.


Many experiments in C. elegans neurobiology and development benefit from automated imaging of worm behavior. Here we describe procedures for building a flexible and inexpensive imaging system using standard optical and mechanical components.

Keywords: Behavior; C. elegans; Imaging.
