Assessing Cognitive Phenotypes In Zebrafish
© Springer International Publishing Switzerland 2017. All rights reserved. Zebrafish are becoming increasingly utilized in behavioral studies as a model of human learning and memory. The existing studies indicate that this species is capable of a variety of cognitive processes, demonstrating its value as a model organism. Popular zebrafish behavioral paradigms to assess various aspects of learning and memory include the startle response, novel tank, learned spatial alternation, three-chamber tank, T-maze and plus maze. Each paradigm is sensitive to pharmacological, genetic and/or experimental manipulations, and within each test specific methodologies and apparatuses have been developed to accommodate the abilities and limitations of this aquatic model, as reviewed here.
