FlySiesta is a free, open-source program that analyzes activity and sleep data of flies. The program has been written and runs in Matlab, and is intended to be used with data files obtained through the Drosophila Activity Monitoring (DAM) System.

Although the program extracts "general" activity parameters such as the activity and sleep profiles, the total time of activity/sleep, mean bout lengths and number of bouts — FlySiesta's main focus lies in analyzing the fine scale dynamics of the transitions between the behavioral states, by studying the 'burstiness' of the inter-event-interval or event-length distributions.
