Cool scanning electron microscope image taken by Annie Cavanagh and David McCarthy: A zebra fish larva 32 hours after hatching from its egg. Zebra fish are one of the fundamental cornerstones of cancer, cardiovascular, immune system, infectious diseases and drugs research in laboratories all over the world.
Today we are closer than ever to understanding the biological basis of human thought. In a major first for neuroscience, researchers have produced an image showing almost an entire vertebrate brain at work — down to the level of individual neurons. Soon we'll have a human brain "activity map" which reveals how…
Japanese researchers have recorded a real-time video of thoughts forming in the brain of a live animal as it stalks its prey. The breakthrough was made possible by using zebrafish — a species with a translucent head — and a fluorescent protein that lights up when single neurons are activated. And this study may…
Really, one of the key issues with sushi is that it doesn't glow under black light. To solve that problem, the Center for Genomic Gastronomy is using genetically modified fishies from the pet store to create tasty treats that will be perfect for your next rave.
What does a common arthritis medication have to do with skin cancer? More than you might think.
Researchers have peered into the brains of the baby zebrafish — through their transparent skin — and found that their brains have fewer synapses when they sleep. This probably holds true for humans too.
This fish was the first lucky organism to have its cells imaged using microscopic X-ray vision. This kind of image was never possible before. But now scientists can watch as living cells transform within your body.
