Image Analysis Techniques for Studying Photomovements
Motility of swimming microorganisms is among some of the well documented activities that have been observed by light microscopy. This activity and other physological responses are becoming increasingly understood at the subcellular and molecular level; however, for a thorough understanding of the broad range of behavioral and physiological aspects of motility a complete, automatic analysis of microorganism motion under environmental stimuli could represent a very useful tool for the the cell biologist, by providing him with the exact determination of fundamental parameters as speed, direction, and acceleration.
