Interested in zebrafish research? Read three blog post about zebrafish behavior research or visit us at the 10th European Zebrafish Meeting in Budapest, Hungary this summer.
Zebrafish
The zebrafish (Danio rerio) is increasingly being used as model in behavioural, neurobiological and genetic research.
Brown mouse
Some might argue that laboratory mice are not the same as wild mice, yet they remain capable of performing the innate, routine behaviors necessary to survive in natural environments, such as courtship and nest-building,
Pigs in stable
A commonly used assay for assessment of fear in animals is the novel environment test.In this test, an animal is placed in an arena for a particular time period and behaviors are scored.
Rat in open field
Here are six recommendations the authors list to improve the translational and predictive value of behavioral readouts.
Mouse on shelter in PhenoTyper
Scientists have been performing open field tests for quite some time now. Over the years it has become one of the most popular tests in rodent behavioral research. So what’s not to love?
Drinking coffee
What is the most popular drug in the world? It’s not alcohol, cannabis, or cocaine, but something most of us start with each day. Coffee; or, more specifically: caffeine.
Zebrafish
We all know of animals that are able to regenerate: lizards that grow back their tails, flatworms that can grow into new worms when cut in half. Zebrafish have this special ability as well.
Zebrafish tracking
Zebrafish. This little fish is a vertebrate, and a relatively complex one. Looking at the major neurotransmitters and hormones that are investigated in neuroscience, they are as good of a model as many mammalian species.

Some disorders cannot simply be diagnosed with a blood test or tissue-culture. Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a good example; its diagnosis relies upon behavioral tests and questionnaires.
