Are fish empathic?
Ever wondered if fish can be empathetic towards each other? Find out in this blog how oxytocin plays a role in fish behavior!
Using zebrafish as an early warning system of neurotoxic substances
How can we use a zebrafish (Danio rerio) embryo model to detect possible neurotoxic chemical mixtures that are difficult to detect with normal chemical analyses?
Zebrafish behaviors shows true effect of chemicals on aquatic animals
Modern industrial processes, agricultural practices and domestic waste result in all sorts of chemicals getting into our waters. CPC is widely used. How does it affect the fish?
Does well plate size matter? A methodological study in zebrafish
The DanioVision observation chamber is a versatile research tool to study Zebrafish embryos and larvae by using well plates. Does the size of the wells in these plates affect study outcomes?
Tracking tiny transparent fish with EthoVision XT
Danionella cerebrum, a recently discovered cyprinid fish, has the smallest known vertebrate brain. What are the behavioral differences or similarities to their zebrafish relatives?
Behavioral neuroscience in the circular economy: the contribution of Zebrafish
What do Zebrafish and sewage sludge have in common? In this blog their use as a screening tool is highlighted to asses the ecotoxicity in soil.
Studying zebrafish behavior using video tracking software
When it comes to studying zebrafish behavior, video tracking software is the ideal tool. Here we highlight five recent posts about studies on zebrafish behavior where researchers applied video tracking software.
Citizen science in research: studying contaminated drinking water with zebrafish
Local residents, students and scientists joined forces to investigate harmful contaminants in drinking water wells in New England. Behavioral effects of these contaminants were studied in zebrafish.
What is DanioVision? A brief insight in zebrafish tracking
In this blog we provide a quick refresh on the topic of zebrafish, and how DanioVision contributes to this field.
Getting robust results: one zebrafish is not like the other
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?
