In July 2021, we came together at the Champalimaud Centre for the Unknown to perform behavioural assays of zebrafish with a seizure-like phenotype. This ZENITH collaboration brought together not only us students but also the mutants and a suitable behavioural platform. Using high speed tracking cameras (700 frame/s) we were able to record over 100 freely swimming srrm3 eMIC(-/-) mutants and their wild-type siblings to classify seizures and bout sequences within.
It was a unique and fantastic experience - working closely with another scientist and learning complementary yet different approaches to of problem solving and discuss science! We hope to continue working closely in the future!
