Zebrafish larvae locomotor behavior often has a high variability, which can have a big impact on your results. Still, it is one of the most used parameters. So how can you make your study more robust?
THC and CBD are well-know compounds of cannabis (Cannabis sativa), use for recreational purposes or health benefits. We have less knowledge of the effects of another active compound: CBN.
Teresa Capriello and colleagues use zebrafish to study the neuronal mechanisms of heavy metals in connection to neurodegenerative and neuromuscular diseases.
How zebrafish are helping us to discover the mechanisms behind this neurodegenerative disease.
Knockout of Down syndrome gene in zebrafish leads to autistic-like behaviors: Though earlier knockout models in mice failed, researchers have developed a successful zebrafish model.
A zebrafish is not just a zebrafish. Strain differences in zebrafish behavior and physiology.
Shared sorrow is half a sorrow, according to the old proverb. New research indicates that social support is not only important for us humans, but also for zebrafish!
Have you got the guts for it? Well, I hope you at least have the gut bacteria for it.
Depression: a fifth (!) of us cope with it, making it the most prevalent psychiatric disorder. Prof. Gerlai recently investigated the interaction between mild stress and developmental isolation in zebrafish models.
Stress might seem like a bad word, but it does have its perks. A recent study by Rodrigo J. De Marco uncovered the role of the pituitary in zebrafish larvae behavior after the onset of stress.
