Abstract

For many behavioral-biological problems it is necessary to have definite information on the motoric activity of the test animals. In contrast to classic methods such as the exercise wheel or the rocking cage, much importance has recently been attached in particular to contact free techniques such as the capacitor or coil field methods.
