Scientists reveal the “Lego pieces” that form complex zebrafish movements
Motor behavior could be formed from a range of continuous possible movements. But it could also be constituted by sequences of distinct, discrete movement types. New results suggest that the latter is the case, at least for zebrafish larvae.
Much like music is made of notes, the complex behaviors of zebrafish larvae, such as hunting or social interactions, are formed from a small set of movements types arranged in specific sequences. – João Marques
