A Generative Statistical Algorithm for Automatic Detection of Complex Postures
(A) Left: a smoothed midline and admissible regions (magenta) for the fine detection of the posture of a wild-type animal. Right: the corresponding fine instantiation. (B) Additional examples of detected non-self-avoiding postures, rarely exhibited by wild-type animals. The midline and edges of the animal are depicted in yellow and green, respectively. The head and the tail of the animal are depicted in blue and red, respectively. Scale bar represents 100 μm.
