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.
This is an unconditioned behavioural test used to assess exploratory behaviour and spatial working memory function. One paradigm described here is the Spontaneous Alternation Test.
This protocol will run a 48 hour acute immobilisation/activity test based on the OECD guidelines for testing of chemicals.
