In order to understand the relationship between the nervous system and behavior of C.θ1θgans, we developed software to analyze the behavior. The method to identify automatically the behavioral states (forward movement, turn etc.) was refined, and a novel method to evaluate periodicity and irregularity of the head movement was proposed. By using these methods, we found the difference of head movements among the wild type and several mutant strains, and the head movement age-dependency. The quantitative behavioral analysis, behavioral model, and neural model were utilized to understand the behavioral choice when two sensory inputs were applied simultaneously, and that in the acid avoidance behavior.
