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?
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?
How to unravel the long-term memory of cuttlefish: automated video tracking
Did you know that cuttlefish have three hearts, have such an advanced vision that they can see what’s behind them, can count to five.
Toxicometabolism and behavior of zebrafish exposed to cannabinol
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.
The effect of microplastics and pharmaceuticals on trophic interactions
Microplastics (found in common products such as toothpaste) and pharmaceuticals have an impact on the environment. Their combined effect, however, is still largely unknown.
Zebrafish help us to understand neurodegenerative and neuromuscular diseases
Teresa Capriello and colleagues use zebrafish to study the neuronal mechanisms of heavy metals in connection to neurodegenerative and neuromuscular diseases.
