node:body | entity_field

Software for Automated Segmentation and Tracking of Mouse Whiskers from High-speed Video

Whisk is a cross-platform package for fully automated tracking of single rows of whiskers in high-speed video. It consists of a set of command-line utilities and a graphical interface for semi-automated tracking. Python and Matlab interfaces are also provided. Whisk can read StreamPix SEQ and TIFF as well as any video format that FFMPEG can decode.
