Anatomy and Histology of Brain of Zebra Fish

Vikash Dhakar

Abstract: The anatomical and histological observations of the brain zebra fishes differ among species, but they resemble each other?s in the number of brain compartments, and it is necessary to characterize well the anatomical and histological observations in the brain. Five brain divisions usually observed which are from cranial to caudal; telencephalon or forebrain (contain 2 olfactory lobes and cerebrum), diencephalon (contain epithalamus, thalamus and hypothalamus), mesencephalon or midbrain (contain 2 optic lobes which are connected internally with torus longitudinally and medially with the torus semi - circularis, and optic tegmentum), metencephalon or hindbrain (cerebellum) and myelencephalon or brain stem (medulla oblongata). The ventricular organization composed of the olfactory, lateral, the third, the tectal and the fourth ventricles.
