Analyse Activity and Sleep Behaviour

Use behavioural variables to score activity and infer sleep from bouts of immobility. It is primarily designed to score sleep in fruit flies from Drosophila Activity Monitor (TriKinetics) and Ethoscope data. It implements sleep scoring using the "five-minute rule" (Hendricks et al. (2000) ), activity classification for Ethoscopes (Geissmann et al. (2017) ) and a new algorithm to detect when animals are dead.

sleepr is part of the rethomics framework. This README is a short explanation of the basics of sleepr. A comprehensive tutorial is available on the rethomics webpage. We also provide a conventional pdf documentation.
