An assay to assess anxiety-like behaviours, the anxiolytic drug effects, and to investigate the (epi)genetic bases of anxiety-related behaviour.
In this protocol, we outline two simple social preference assays for zebrafish adults or larvae.
Measures the response of Zebrafish larvae to a sudden transition to darkness. Ability to respond is an indicator of an animals internal state.
The startle response of zebrafish larvae to stimuli has long been employed for analyses of motor function, sensory physiology and basic forms of learning.
A circadian rhythm is any biological process that displays an endogenous, entrainable oscillation of about 24 hours.
