Project description

The analysis of a wide range of behavioral tests in various zebrafish disease models requires specialized basic equipment, which is currently not yet available at Ugent. This concerns high-throughput automatic video tracking and analysis of general behavior, memory and learning, social preference, pain-related behavior, visual behavior, and basic motor functions, both at embryonic, larval and adult zebrafish stages.
