Publication in Cell Systems

Our latest paper has been published in Cell Systems: The structure and timescales of heat perception in larval zebrafish.

This study uses an infrared laser-based system to heat freely swimming larval zebrafish with high temporal precision and derive models of how temperature information is transformed into motor output. These models reveal that larval zebrafish integrate temperature information over a time interval of 400 ms to decide on swim initiation.

Congratulations to the first author, postdoc Martin!
