The AutoSomTM system is an automated sleep-deprivation system specially designed to conduct sleep-related research in rodents. The system enables non-invasive, fully automated, and highly-regulated monitoring of rodent’s sleep/wake activity.
The device consists of a floor-sensor board that detects the vibrations when the mouse moves in its home-cage. A motor is fixed under the floor-sensor board that turns the rotating bar to keep the animal awake.
The system operates four units interfacing one computer via USB cable. The screenshots of the system using a vibration signal that is used to assess active or inactive (‘sleep’), and an infrared array is utilized for the detection of location and locomotion of the animal.
