Behavioral and Neural Genetics of Zebrafish

Behavioral and Neural Genetics of Zebrafish assembles the state-of-the-art methodologies and current concepts pertinent to their neurobehavioral genetics. Discussing their natural behavior, motor function, learning and memory, this book focuses on the fry and adult zebrafish, featuring a comprehensive account of modern genetic and neural methods adapted to, or specifically developed for, Danio rerio. Numerous examples of how these behavioral methods may be utilized for disease models using the zebrafish are presented, as is a section on bioinformatics and "big-data" related questions. Provides the most comprehensive snapshot of the fast-evolving zebrafish neurobehavior genetics field Describes behavioral, genetic and neural methods and concepts for use in adult and larval zebrafish Features examples of zebrafish models of human central nervous system disorders Discusses bioinformatics questions pertinent to zebrafish neurobehavioral genetics

A central goal of neuroscience is to understand the neural basis of behavior. The zebrafish is a vertebrate model system that allows behavior to be studied using both systems and molecular genetic approaches. Here we present a psychophysical and genetic analysis of optomotor behavior in zebrafish larvae. By applying psychophysical methods developed for primates to zebrafish we have demonstrated than motion detection in zebrafish uses mechanisms that are broadly similar to humans. The larvae are susceptible to visual illusions that
