Analysis of video recordings for extracting larval motility behaviour

Type: 
Internship position (12 ECTS)
programme: 
EMBC+
The internship consist in the post-processing of video recordings of larval motion with existing Matlab routines in order to extract larval velocities time series. This work is the second step in the elaboration of larval motility models to be incorporated in biophysical models to derive connectivity predictions. The species of focus are the sea urchin Paracentrotus lividus and the gastropod Concholepas concholepas.
