Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle Format. Book excerpt: 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

Summary : It is unclear whether the properties of neuronal circuits beyond the retina limit the spatial and temporal resolution of vision. The kinetics of neurotransmission at central synapses should limit an animal's ability to see rapid movements. Accurate retinotopy should be essential for the perception of fine spatial detail. We have ...

Summary : Vertebrate models of learning and memory are hampered by massively complex neural circuits. Further, the engrams of memory in many vertebrate systems are highly distributed, increasing the difficulty of their identification. Invertebrate models, which possess much simpler nervous systems, have been used to relate neuronal changes to behavior changes. However, ...
