Why ANY-maze?

ANY-maze is today’s most advanced video tracking system. Trusted by thousands of researchers around the world, ANY-maze couples an unrivalled depth of features with a simple, familiar design, to provide automated testing in virtually any behavioural test.

All new ANY-maze Version 5

ANY-maze version 5 is the biggest update in the history of the system. Built on the solid foundations of version 4, this new version has an updated user interface and is packed with exciting new features - but don't worry, we've been careful to retain the legendary ANY-maze ease of use.

ANY-maze has always been praised for its simple and intuitive user interface, but in version 5 this has been taken to a whole new level.

ANY-maze new features:

  • Improvements when testing: When working with multiple apparatus, you can now adjust how the apparatus images are displayed on the screen. Another much requested improvement is the ability to start (or end) the tests in all apparatus at the same time.
  • More flexible animal management: It’s now easier than ever to set up the animals you’ll be using in an Experiment. You can now easily view a list of animals and simply add animals to that.
  • Procedures have replaced Events and Actions: Procedures provide a simple and intuitive method to control what's happening in a test.
  • Improved reports: The layout of all reports has been updated. Graphs, track plots, and heat maps (previously called occupancy plots) are now larger and clearer, and heat maps now include a scale.
  • Smaller files, faster analysis: The compression of tracking data has been improved and large experiment files are now typically 50% smaller than those in previous versions.
  • More support for input/output devices: ANY-maze already supports a wide range of input/output devices, such as switches, photo-beams, shockers, and speakers. In version 5, we’ve added support for analogue inputs, analogue outputs, and syringe pumps.
  • Improved help and support: You can now contact technical support from within ANY-maze itself without needing an email program installed on your computer. You can also send us files (of any size) directly from within ANY-maze.
    Furthermore, we’ve restructured, reviewed, and updated all 2000-plus pages of the ANY-maze help.

    Video tracking is the process of locating a moving object (or multiple objects) over time using a camera. It has a variety of uses and it has been found of great advantage to match the need for automating behavioral observations.

    Video tracking systems enable researchers to study behavior in a more reliable and consistent way and over longer time periods than if they were using direct observation or manual recording.
