The zebrafish has become the standard model for the study of the development of the brain in vertebrates. Molecular biologists, developmental biologists, and neuroscientists increasingly turn to this fish with it's now wide variety of available mutants and known marker genes. This book is intended as a basic handbook and guideline for zebrafish researchers who seek to understand early brain development and neurogenesis in this important model system. The book introduces the reader to the field and principles of vertebrate brain development and neurogenesis as it is commonly investigated in other model organisms such as frog, chick and mouse.
With its holistic and broad approach, the atlas is not only recommended for zebrafish researchers working on specific questions of developmental neurogenetics, but also for students at progressed levels who enter the young and exciting field of zebrafish developmental neurogenetics. There is simply no alternative source for combined neuroanatomical and gene expression data in the zebrafish on this level of detail.
* Stands as the first gene-expression based developmental atlas in any neurogenetic model system
* Provides comparative context to other model systems
* Includes many explanatory schematics in uniform style and color coding
