The title: "Making sense of your surroundings - mapping the inhibitory efferents of the lateral line in zebrafish larvae


The group Zebrafish Neural networks aim to better understand how neural networks are formed and how these networks are able to produce flexible (behavioural) outputs. For this work we use the zebrafish as a model. Recently, we were granted funding that allowed us to look at the lateral line system of zebrafish, a network of hair cells and sensory neurons that register the flow of water around the animal. Our focus is specifically on the inhibitory efferents that modulate how sensitive this sensory network is.
