Psychophysics and Genetics of Zebrafish Visual Behavior Book Review:

A central goal of neuroscience is to understand the neural basis of behavior. The zebrafish is a vertebrate model system that allows behavior to be studied using both systems and molecular genetic approaches. Here we present a psychophysical and genetic analysis of optomotor behavior in zebrafish larvae. By applying psychophysical methods developed for primates to zebrafish we have demonstrated than motion detection in zebrafish uses mechanisms that are broadly similar to humans. The larvae are susceptible to visual illusions that indicate that they detect Fourier motion energy in visual scenes. They also respond to non-Fourier motion, an ability that is believed to depend on visual cortex in humans. Different visual behaviors in the fish use different chromatic information. The optomotor response, in particular, is colorblind and pools signals from longer wavelength cones, while excluding shorter wavelength inputs. Motion processing seems to be functionally similar between higher and lower vertebrates despite large differences in neuroanatomy. Using an automated assay, we have conducted a large-scale genetic screen for recessive mutants affecting the optomotor response. Testing these mutants with a battery of behavioral assays allows us to categorize them into motor and visual system mutants, as well as some that are specific to the optomotor response. Many have normal visual system anatomy, but some are missing specific cell-types or have defects in axon target selection.

The Orexin System Basic Science and Role in Sleep Pathology Book Review:

The orexin system, discovered in 1998, has emerged as a crucial player in regulating the sleep and wake balance inside our brain. This discovery has sparked a burst of novel and dynamic research on the physiology and pathology of sleep. The Orexin System: Basic Science and Role in Sleep Pathology honors this research and the authors share their ideas and perspectives on the novel developments within the field. The book examines the intricate role of the orexin system in regulating sleep and wake, and its interaction with other wake-regulating systems. The orexin system is dissected at the cellular and molecular level to explore the diversity of the orexin-producing neurons, their projections, and their signaling pathways. Additionally, the book discusses the diseases which are associated with a dysfunctional orexin system, such as narcolepsy, insomnia, substance abuse, and Alzheimer’s disease, and explores the new potential therapeutic applications derived from the burst of research around this fascinating system. This publication is essential reading for neurobiologists, neurologists, psychopharmacologists, sleep researchers, and other researchers and clinical scientists interested in sleep, sleep research, insomnia, and medicine in general.

Glucocorticoids Book Review:

As one class of the most important steroid hormones, glucocorticoids have long been recognised and their therapeutic benefits have been widely used in clinical treatment, especially in anti-inflammation cases. Glucocorticoids regulate various processes in the body including the mobilization of energy stores, immune functions, gene expression, and maintenance of the homeostasis as well as the stress response, this is not surprising that the concept of "glucocorticoids" is mentioned in almost all medical text books that focus on specific organs or systems such as the cardiovascular system, the immune system, and the neuroendocrine system. The book of Glucocorticoids - New Recognition of Our Familiar Friend aims to introduce the latest findings relating to glucocorticoids, either freshly from the laboratory or from clinical case studies, and to open up a new angle of looking at the issue of balancing the therapeutic benefits and side effects brought up by glucocorticoids.

Decoding Neural Circuit Structure and Function Book Review:

This book offers representative examples from fly and mouse models to illustrate the ongoing success of the synergistic, state-of-the-art strategy, focusing on the ways it enhances our understanding of sensory processing. The authors focus on sensory systems (vision, olfaction), which are particularly powerful models for probing the development, connectivity, and function of neural circuits, to answer this question: How do individual nerve cells functionally cooperate to guide behavioral responses? Two genetically tractable species, mice and flies, together significantly further our understanding of these processes. Current efforts focus on integrating knowledge gained from three interrelated fields of research: (1) understanding how the fates of different cell types are specified during development, (2) revealing the synaptic connections between identified cell types (“connectomics”) using high-resolution three-dimensional circuit anatomy, and (3) causal testing of how iden tified circuit elements contribute to visual perception and behavior.
