The Digital Rat: A 3D model of the rat head and vibrissal array

The Digital Rat represents our laboratory's efforts towards the development of a morphologically and mechanically accurate model of the rat head and vibrissal (whisker) array. The long-term goal is to develop a simulation environment that can be used to model the spatiotemporal patterns of mechanical input to vibrissae during the rat's tactile exploratory behaviors.

The Hartmann SeNSE group is now a part of the Neuroscience and Robotics (NxR) Laboratory, so the Digital Rat has moved
