Peering into fish brains to see how they work

Emre Yaksi is the newest group leader at Nobel Laureates May-Britt and Edvard Moser’s Kavli Institute for Systems Neuroscience at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology. He has roughly 90 strains of genetically modified zebrafish that he uses for his research. Credit: Nancy Bazilchuk/NTNU The newest research group at Norwegian Nobel laureates May-Britt and Edvard Moser’s Kavli Institute for Systems Neuroscience uses transgenic zebrafish to unlock the secrets of the brain. One of the fundamental challenges facing neuroscientists who want to understand how the brain works is actually figuring out how the brain is wired together and how neurons interact. Norwegian Nobel laureates and neuroscientists May-Britt and Edvard Moser of the Norwegian University of Science and Technology solved this problem by learning how to record from individual neurons in…
