ABSTRACT
In the past year, several new techniques have been used with great success in the study of nervous system development in the zebrafish. Perhaps the most exciting results have come from experiments in which single identified cells or small groups of cells have been transplanted between embryos in order to examine cell determination and the site of action of genetic mutations.
