BIOTACT Whisker Tracking Tool
The BWTT is an artefact of the EU Framework 7 Project BIOTACT 215910. It is an extensible software framework that runs under Matlab (Mathworks, TM) providing for the computation of whisker tracking algorithms for small mammal observation. Other tracking algorithms (e.g. snout tracking) can also be included. The software is released with a number of algorithms included, allowing rapid whisker tracking with no other software required (other than Matlab).

A software tool for tracking fluorescent cells in 3D
F-Tracker3D is acronym of "fluorescent cell tracker in three-dimensions". It is a software tool designed to track fluorescent cells using time-lapse z-stacks of images acquired with a confocal or light-sheet microscope. First, each single cell is tracked in 2D by using the maximum intensity projections of the z-stacks and CellTracker, the free open source software available at: www.celltracker.website. Then, the 3D track of each cell is obtained analysing the z-stacks and looking for the z-plane with the maximum intensity value for the different x-y positions previously determined. F-Tracker3D is written in MATLAB (©, The MathWorks, Inc., Massachusetts, USA) and the source code is freely provided. Requirements: MATLAB 2015a and Image Processing Toolbox 9.2 or later versions.

Eccentricity correction for the hole drilling strain gauge method
The hole drilling strain gauge method is one of the most utilised techniques to determine residual stresses. The presence of eccentricity between the centre of the hole and its theoretical position can compromise the accuracy of the method. The present work proposes a method to correct the measured strains in eccentric holes in the case of non-uniform residual stresses. The depths where the strains are measured in the ASTM E837-13 are taken as reference and specific functions are proposed to use the method without the need of performance finite element model simulations in each new problem.
Code for a freshman seminar in animal behavior
At Winston-Salem State University, 'Liberal Learning Seminars' are freshman seminars that teach skills such as critical thinking and oral communication. This code is for one such seminar, called Why Animals Do It, which will be offered at WSSU beginning in 2016. The program will combine several simulation models and allow students to alter parameters and use computers to study animal behavior. All student interactions will be through a friendly user interface -- no coding is required by students.
This project houses software to analyze data acquired from electrophysiology experiments. Currently, we have an Octave/MATLAB program to analyze electroneurogram traces of coupled oscillators, and a Perl library for the analysis of voltage trace data
Cell impedance analysis software.
MAT-MECAS is used for calculation of impedance parameters of a cell from recorded current responses elicited by bipolar voltage stimuli in a whole-cell patch-clamp experiment. The calculations are based on a FFT deconvolution procedure and on approximation of the reconstructed currents with a theoretical function. The impulse response of the signal path is necessary for the calculations. Read manual first! For testing MAT-MECAS we provide a sample data along with sample stimulation protocols.
