Behavioral assays

Zebrafish behavior and activity patterns are basic measurements used in many studies. They can reveal information on stereotypic behaviors, circadian rhythmicity, motor control, movement disorders, neural development, thermal preference and more. We have systems designed for these types of experiments on larval and adult zebrafish, including Noldus DanioVision and dedicated EthoVision video tracking software, Noldus Danioscope, and Loligo temperature preference setup. Further, functional behavioral assays, such as optokinetic responses, acoustic and mechanical startle reflexes, electroretinograms, and motor visual responses have proven their worth several times.
