NYU Tandon Researchers Develop Robotic Platform for Behavior Research

A team of researchers at New York University's Tandon School of Engineering have developed a robotic platform to assist in the study of freshwater fish behavior.

The researchers tested the robotic platform with zebrafish, a "highly versatile" freshwater fish that is "increasingly taking the place of more complex animals in behavioral studies," according to a news release from the university. "Understanding their social behavior may help researchers explore mechanisms behind human disorders like anxiety, addiction, autism and schizophrenia."
