Schmidt, R., Strähle, U., and Scholpp, S. (2013) Neurogenesis in zebrafish -- from embryo to adult. Neural Development. 8(1):3.
Neurogenesis in the developing central nervous system consists of the induction and
proliferation of neural progenitor cells and their subsequent differentiation into
mature neurons. External as well as internal cues orchestrate neurogenesis in a precise
temporal and spatial way. In the last 20 years, the zebrafish has proven to be an
excellent model organism to study neurogenesis in the embryo. Recently, this vertebrate
has also become a model for the investigation of adult neurogenesis and neural regeneration.
Here, we summarize the contributions of zebrafish in neural development and adult
