Interactive Zebrafish Brain

Interactive Zebrafish Brain

Michael Kunst and his colleagues used a genetic trick to randomly label individual neurons among the 100,000 nerve cells in the brain of zebrafish larvae. Gradually, the information from hundreds of zebrafish larvae were combined and used to generate a nerve cell atlas: a “standard brain” with over 2,000 neurons from 72 brain regions. VIDEO

Anna Kramer and Michael Kunst summarize their studies about the flow of movement information through the zebrafish brain and the zebrafish brain atlas in this video.
