Casting a wider net: New system measures brain activity of several zebrafish concurrently

For a wide variety of reasons, zebrafish are one of the most widely used animal models for drug-testing related to neurological disorders. In a breakthrough study, researchers from the Daegu Gyeongbuk Institute of Science and Technology, Korea, have developed the first system that can effectively measure brain activity in multiple adult zebrafish simultaneously, opening doors to the much faster and low-cost testing of drugs for neurological diseases such as epilepsy.
