Researching stroke using zebrafish

Dr Paul Kasher from Manchester University is trying to understand the immediate pathological responses to stroke in the brain and is screening for potential drugs to treat these responses by using zebrafish larvae to model what happens in a human.
Every two seconds, someone in the world is having a stroke. In the UK alone, there are about 1.2 million survivors of stroke, who have lived through part of their brain losing, if… http://www.understandinganimalresearch.org.uk/news/research-medical-benefits/researching-stroke-using-zebrafish/
