SUMMARY
Perception is usually an active process by which ac-
tion selects and affects sensory information. During
rodent active touch, whisker kinematics influences
how objects activate sensory receptors. In order to
fully characterize whisker motion, we reconstructed
whisker position in 3D and decomposed whisker
