zPACT: Tissue Clearing and Immunohistochemistry on Juvenile Zebrafish Brain
In studies of brain function, it is essential to understand the underlying neuro-architecture. Very young zebrafish larvae are widely used for neuroarchitecture studies, due to their size and natural transparency. However, this model system has ...
