Default Computer Idiot Looking for Answers

Hi there. I am a PhD candidate at the Tulane University School of Medicine in New Olreans, Louisiana, USA. I am trying to set up an experiment involving tracking the movement of experimental mice around their cages over several days. I will be doing time-lapse photography of the animals using an IR camera, but I need some kind of software that can help me analyze the images and tell me how far the mice are moving between each fram. I know nothing in this area and have no idea where to start so I thought I'd try getting some advice on some online forums. Hope this works!

There's always a relevant XKCD comic:


What you want sounds easy, but finding software that can understand what a "mouse" is so that you track the distance moved is an enormous task.
