By studying head fixed or rigidly tethered animals, neuroscientists have been able to make high-resolution neurophysiological and behavioral measurements during naturalistic tasks. Tethered paradigms have a particularly rich history in the study of insect behavior and in this thesis I describe technology that extends by one-hundred fold|from hours to weeks|the timescale over which individual Drosophila can be routinely studied while tethered in place.
