Serotonin (or 5-hydroxytryptamine; 5-HT) and monoamine oxidase (MAO) are involved in several physiological functions and pathological conditions. We show that the serotonergic system and its development in zebrafish are similar to those of other vertebrates rendering zebrafish a good model to study them. Development of MAO expression followed a similar time(More)
The functions of PTEN (phosphatase/tensin homolog)-induced putative kinase (PINK1), which is mutated in early-onset Parkinson's disease, are poorly understood. We characterized a PINK1 antibody and found colocalization of PINK1-like immunoreactivity with aminergic markers. We inactivated translation of Pink1 using morpholino-oligonucleotides (MOs) in larval(More)
Understanding how active dendrites are exploited for behaviorally relevant computations is a fundamental challenge in neuroscience. Grid cells in medial entorhinal cortex are an attractive model system for addressing this question, as the computation they perform is clear: they convert synaptic inputs into spatially modulated, periodic firing.
