zebrafish down syndrome gene autism
Though earlier knockout models in mice failed, researchers have developed a successful zebrafish model.
top 14 research blog posts
We cannot stay behind when it comes to the end-of-year lists, so here is a top 14 of 2014’s most popular animal behavior posts on our Noldus behavioral research blog.
Zebrafish
The zebrafish (Danio rerio) is increasingly being used as model in behavioural, neurobiological and genetic research.
5 Reasons to visit FENS Forum of Neuroscience 2014
Here are 5 reasons why you should attend FENS Forum in Milan!
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. 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.

They may have just found the answer to this at the University of Toronto, Mississauga (Canada). Cheung et al. tried out a method using subcutaneous injection with dyes.
Do you attend conferences? Imagine networking with 30,000 fellow neuroscientists in beautiful San Diego, California.
Rat in open field
In this post I am looking back at our most popular posts (based on numbers of views) on video tracking. Zebrafish, optogenetics, and Parkinson’s disease are topics that dominate the list, which honestly is no surprise to me.
Zebrafish tracking
PCBs are synthetic molecules that were used in transformers, electric motors, and more applications. It was quickly discovered that these molecules are toxic, and subsequently, they were banned.

By this point, we do not need to tell you how popular zebrafish are. We also probably do not need to point out the great technological advances that are being made in research because of the use of optogenetics.
