3-D models reveal hidden details of zebrafish behavior
May 16, 2017
In the first experiments of their kind, researchers found significant discrepancies in data generated when tracking the social behavior of zebrafish in 2-D as opposed to 3-D. Although the researchers say the cost of 3-D tracking is too expensive to replace 2-D studies, it could significantly reduce the number of fish needed for laboratory experiments.
