As more and more labs are establishing zebrafish (Danio rerio) projects, zebrafish are rapidly becoming a popular model organism for neuroscience research. This day-long ISBS course consists of a series of lectures covering major neurobehavioral domains and advanced phenotyping techniques for probing normal and pathological behaviors in zebrafish. The lectures will be followed by informal breakout sessions discussing the practical application of zebrafish screens, 2D and 3D behavioral analyses, video-tracking tools, and future new directions in the field. Workshop participants will also have the opportunity to present their data, discuss their research problems, and obtain expert consultation from workshop organizers.
