Neonatal white matter injury
Preterm birth is a major problem in neonatal healthcare. Erik van Tilborg developed a new animal model to closely mimic this clinical situation, an important step in finding new treatment options.
Zebrafish
Why is it that when people drink, only small subsets of individuals develop an alcohol addiction? Steven Tran from the Gerlai Lab tells us why zebrafish are very helpful in the search for the answer to this question.
In one of my previous blog posts, I wrote about the success of insecticide treated bed nets in preventing malaria. In the past five years, mortality from malaria has dropped with 60%.

Looking back at the Neuroscience 2015 meeting in Chicago. It was a great show!
chicago neuroscience 2015
I have been talking to so many interesting people around here! Researchers, other vendors. The last day at Neuroscience 2015.
neuroscience 2015 chicago zebrafish booth
Neuroscience 2015. Meeting all those scientists, getting to ask them all about their research…there is a lot to take in. Here are some examples from today.

Time for some running action at Neuroscience 2015. And we had a satellite symposium!
Zebrafish larvae
The lab of Prof. Richard Baines investigates how the electrical development of neurons is regulated. His research was long based on the larvae of fruitfly, but the lab recently started using zebrafish larvae.
Zebrafish tracking
Zebrafish have more in common with humans than meets the eye. This is why they have become a “go-to” model in neuroscience research. But one difference remains: we walk and they swim.
medaka
We are all very familiar with zebrafish as a model species in neuroscience research. Today, let's talk about another fish, the Japanese medaka.
A new model for POCD in rats
This week we have a guest post by Iris Hovens. She has done some really interesting research into the consequences of surgery in terms of reduced memory and concentration problems.
