Measuring Behavioral Entropy

Entropy provides a measure of the predictability of series of behaviors. This approach is used in Davis et al. (2017, PNAS, in press) and Molet et al. (2016, Translational Psychiatry) to characterize early life experience in rodents and humans. You can read about Behavioral Entropy (coding the data and computing the entropy). You can also view the code to perform the relevant calculations.
