Zebrafish are social animals, and they love shoaling with their peers. A group of zebrafish is thus used as rewards to train a zebrafish with classical conditioning. Zebrafish is a model animal, which is used to diseases such as Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (FAS). Zebrafish with FAS may dislike shoaling with other zebrafish. I developed a software to show different vitual stimulus of zebrafish, and conducted a methodology study whether healthy zebrafish loving shoaling to the virtual stimulus. The paper (pdf) was published on the Zebrafish joural.

I also followed up this study by developing a zebrafish tracking software (both online and offline) to enable operaional conditioning possible in zebrafish studies. Here is an illustration of how to use the software, and a demo. In the demo, I used a zebrafish video. However, this software has been tested with live tracking and the results are the same.

If you would like to use this software for your study, please contact me at I would LOVE to share the software with you..
