Zebrafish is an emerging model system for cardiovascular drug discovery because the electrical properties of the zebra fish heart are remarkably similar to those of the human heart. Drugs absorbed rapidly into the zebra fish circulation, reaching the heart in seconds. Therefore the zebra fish could be an appropriate model for studying cardiac effects of new drugs.

 

The system designed for the study of locomotor activity considers the space and soundings are needed for normal behavior and both of the individual and group dimensions. The movement of the off springs can be clearly tracked in the non-reflectant tank, illuminated with scattered light from the bottom. After a short adaptation period seeds show normal motor activity, there is no sign of stress. The movement of the animals is captured by a camcorder then it is analyzed with the simple, however, efficient SMART software.

 

The system designed for the study of social interactions between seeds considers the space and soundings are needed for normal behavior and both of the individual and group dimensions. The movement of the offsprings can be clearly tracked in the non-reflectant tank, illuminated with scattered light from the bottom. The attitude of the animals is captured by a camcorder then it is analyzed with the simple, however, efficient SMART software. Due to the accurate pattern recognition and individual fish marking the calculated length and area data are highly correct.
