Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a fatal disorder involving the degeneration and loss of motor neurons. The mechanisms of motor neuron loss in ALS are unknown and there are no effective treatments. Defects in the distal axon and at the neuromuscular junction are early events in the disease course, and zebrafish provide a promising in vivo system to(More)
Zebrafish are becoming increasingly popular models for examining the mechanisms of and treatments for neurological diseases. The available methods and technology to examine disease processes in vivo are increasing, however, detailed observations of subcellular structures and processes are complex in whole organisms. To address this need, we developed a(More)
