It was always challenging to study human diseases such as PD in Humans. In this talk, I explain how we can use Zebrafish to model Human diseases and how they can help in understanding the disease better using locomotory behavior.

Secrets to regeneration and immortality from cnidarians

Sars Centre, University of Bergen

Jellyfish, sea anemones and corals are fascinating animals that have captivated scientists for more than a century, as they can do whole-body regeneration when injured and many species are considered biologically immortal. A population of special stem cells seems to be the secret to these abilities, however these cells and their presence within cnidarians are just beginning to be understood.
