    Authors:  Felipe Espigares, Raquel R. Martins and Rui F. Oliveira, date: 02/20/2022, view: 821, Q&A: 1

    In this protocol, we describe for the first time a judgment bias paradigm to phenotype the way zebrafish assess ambiguous stimuli. We have developed and validated a protocol for a judgment bias test based on a Go/No-go task, and performed using a half radial maze. After a habituation phase, fish are trained to discriminate between two reference

    A Standardized Tank Design for the Light Dark Task in Zebrafish
    Authors:  Amanda Facciol, Steven Tran and Robert Gerlai, date: 07/20/2019, view: 3606, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] The light dark paradigm is a common behavioral test used to screen a variety of pharmacological agents, including anxiogenics and anxiolytics. Although most often used in rodents, the light dark task has recently been adapted for use in zebrafish. However, a number of inconsistent findings have been reported for this species. Some have found ...
    zPACT: Tissue Clearing and Immunohistochemistry on Juvenile Zebrafish Brain
    [Abstract] In studies of brain function, it is essential to understand the underlying neuro-architecture. Very young zebrafish larvae are widely used for neuroarchitecture studies, due to their size and natural transparency. However, this model system has several limitations, due to the immaturity, high rates of development and limited behavioral repertoire ...
    Measuring Behavioral Individuality in the Acoustic Startle Behavior in Zebrafish
    Authors:  Carlos Pantoja, Adam Hoagland, Elizabeth Carroll, David Schoppik and Ehud Y. Isacoff, date: 04/05/2017, view: 8442, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] The objective of this protocol is to provide a detailed description for the construction and use of a behavioral apparatus, the zBox, for high-throughput behavioral measurements in larval zebrafish (Danio rerio). The zBox is used to measure behavior in multiple individuals simultaneously. Individual fish are housed in wells of multi-well ...
