A study of zebrafish behavior with respect to water temperature grandients.
Project Description

Control zebrafish, and well as those administered with emetic inducing drugs will be placed in a specially designed tanks with either vertical or horizontal water temperature gradients. Where each group of fish position themselves with respect to temperature will be recorded and analyzed.
