Used for processing data obtained from behaviour experiments studying acoustic startle response, a reflex to a loud sound, modulated by several brain regions. The input data is generated with PASTA (Platform for Acoustic STArtle), a DIY device made from a kitchen scale that measures the twitch of an animal standing on the device and records it as time-series data. The function of this package is to import all data, process it in accordance with default or custom metadata describing the experiment protocol, calculate measurements and visualize the results. The PASTA solution and this package are described in Virag et al. (2020) <doi:10.1101/2020.04.10.035766>.
