An emergent field of animal personality necessitates a method for repeated high-throughput quantification of behavioral traits across contexts. In this study, we have developed an automated video stimulus approach to sequentially present different contexts relevant to five "personality" traits (exploration, boldness, neophobia, aggression, and sociability), successfully quantifying repeatable trait measurements in multiple individuals simultaneously. Although our method is designed to quantify...[Show more]
