Research has shown that adult zebrafish have a complex visual system, with two possible opponent mechanisms. Anatomically, zebrafish retina develops in a sequential manner and is immature at hatching. The purpose of the present study was to assess zebrafish retinal development using the electroretinogram (ERG). ERG responses to visual stimuli were obtained from 4-5, 6-8, 13-15, and 21-24 days postfertilization (dpf) zebrafish. Individual waveforms were assessed and compared across the four age… CONTINUE READING
