About this book


As a model organism, zebrafish (Danio rerio) offer an opportunity to perform steadfast scientific investigations in a robust and high-throughput manner. In Zebrafish Neurobehavioral Protocols, experts in the field provide a series of detailed behavioral protocols dealing with the major current research areas in the field of behavioral neuroscience. The chapters discuss the use and interpretation of video-aided quantification of zebrafish behaviors, describe novel assays commonly used to quantify emotionality, learning, memory, and social behaviors in zebrafish, and instruct how to quantify endocrine responses and correlate them with behavior. Written in the Neuromethods series format, the chapters provide authoritative reviews of many commonly used approaches in the field today. This "how to" book will be a useful practical guide for zebrafish researchers and will complement another related book from this series, Zebrafish Models in Neurobehavioral Research. Cutting-edge and timely, Zebrafish Neurobehavioral Protocols serves as an excellent compilation epitomizing the growing potential of zebrafish in modern scientific inquiry.
