Sleep and Circadian Analysis MATLAB Program (SCAMP)
I designed this MATLAB-based software package to analyze locomotor data from fruit flies collected by the TriKinetics Drosophila Activity Monitor (DAM) system. The software has the following advantages:
- It is free to use! All you need to do is download the folder containing the analysis scripts. You will need a version of MATLAB that has the Signal Processing Toolbox installed.
- It is user-friendly, providing easy-to-use graphical user interfaces. All you need to do is point and click! In the download package you will also find a detailed set of step-by-step instructions to walk you through all stages of analysis.
- SCAMP unifies several analysis options into a single program. SCAMP can generate:
- … 21 different calculations based on sleep/wake parameters, including total sleep time, total activity, sleep bout duration, sleep bout number, sleep latency, probability of sleep-wake state transitions, etc.
- … several circadian graphical outputs, and calculates period length and rhythmicity strength.
- … graphs and calculations for phase-shift experiments, in which light pulses or other stimuli are provided to alter the circadian phase of locomotor rhythms.
- … raster plots of sleep for each animal, allowing for easy observation of how reproducible individuals’ sleep patterns are across multiple days.
- … analysis of arousal tests, tabulating beam-crosses before and after stimulation and calculating the % of each group that was awoken from sleep by each arousal event.
- … graphs and calculations for sleep deprivation studies, including cumulative or non-cumulative sleep loss/recovery plots. This could be used for calculations of sleep during and after any discrete or prolonged manipulation, such as starvation, light exposure, etc.
- It creates figures that can be saved directly as .jpg or .png, or in an Adobe Illustrator-compatible .eps format, and creates convenient Excel-compatible .csv export files.
