Research group of Prof. Dr. Stephan Neuhauss in Zurich, Switzerland.

Dr. Heuhauss and his group are interested in the development and the function of the zebrafish visual system. They use the superb genetics and benefit from the cone dominance of the zebrafish larvae. In this model system they can go full circle starting from gene manipulations, via pharmacological manipulations to histological and behavioural assessments of visual performance.

Methodology

  • Visual behaviour and electroretinography in fish
  • reverse and forward genetics
  • transgenesis
  • immunhistochemistry
  • histology

Cooperations

  • Cooperation 1:
    RETICIRC Project (Kammermans, Roska, Weiler, Picaud)
  • Cooperation 2:
    ZF-MODELS

Current Research Projects

Project 1:
Zebrafish as a Model for Usher Syndrome

Project 2:
Adapatation Mechnisms in Cone Photoreceptors

Project 3:
Visual Behavioral Assessment in Teleosts

Project 4:
