Teresa Capriello and colleagues use zebrafish to study the neuronal mechanisms of heavy metals in connection to neurodegenerative and neuromuscular diseases.
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, better known as ALS, is a neurodegenerative disease that leads to the demise of motor neurons. 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.
