Tracking zebrafish in 3D
Recognizing the lack of hands-on education, Dr. Kalueff has started organizing zebrafish behavioral neuroscience and phenotyping workshops. The workshops ran just before and after the SfN annual meeting, October 2012.
Zebrafish and withdrawal
Recent work done by Khor et al. (2011) looked at the effect of mitragynine on behavior in zebrafish going through withdrawal after chronic morphine exposure. The effects of Mitragynine on morphine-withdrawn zebrafish.
The search for robust fear inducing stimuli in zebrafish research
Zebrafish behavioral research has grown by leaps and bounds, and behavioral paradigms are being developed with the aim of better understanding mechanisms that might underlie aberrant behavioral phenotypes.
Zebrafish research: growing demands in South America
It was at the Society for Neuroscience last November that I was invited to speak at the second annual LAZEN meeting held last December in Porto Alegre, Brazil.
Behavioral neuroscience research at SfN Annual Meeting 2011 in Washington, DC
More than 32,000 people attended this year’s Society for Neuroscience annual meeting in Washington D.C. With this many people it is no surprise the range of topics is as vast as you can wrap your brain around.
Recent applications of locomotor and gait analysis
Stem cell research is a promising area of research for spinal cord injury. With 1,25 million individuals suffering from chronic spinal cord injury in the US alone, new treatment approaches are necessary.
Swimming down the pipeline: behavioral assays establish zebrafish in drug screening
Zebrafish are increasingly swimming into the view of large-scale drug screening projects. Behavioral screens can be used as a first-line detection tool for new drug effects, and their popularity continues to grow.
