Fish and Friendship

You wouldn’t think you could learn a lot about friendship by studying the habits of zebrafish.  But you’d be surprised.  A Portuguese research team actually tried, and they were startled by what they found.   608 more words


Turning to Aquarium Fish for Human Spinal Cord Injury Treatment

Syracuse University associate professor of biology Katharine Lewis has received a five-year grant of $242,500 from the New York State Spinal Cord Injury Research Board (SCIRB) that will support her lab’s research on spinal cord development in zebrafish. 30 more words


Syracuse Hosts Inaugural Zebrafish Conference

On a recent Saturday biologists from the region—and as far afield as Toronto—gathered at Syracuse University with one mission: to talk about all things zebrafish. [ 8 more words


Quantitative investigation of the mechanisms of microplastics and nanoplastics toward zebrafish larvae locomotor activity

This study investigated the direct and indirect toxic effects of microplastics and nanoplastics toward zebrafish (Danio rerio) larvae locomotor activity. Results showed that microplastics alone exhibited no significant effects except for the upregulated… 217 more words


Whole-cell patch clamp, part 3: Limitations of quantitative whole-cell voltage clamp

Before I first dived into experimental neuroscience, I imagined whole-cell voltage clamp recordings to be the holy grail of precision. Directly listening to the currents that take place inside of a living neuron! 1,557 more words
