Giving Zebrafish Psychotropic Drugs to Train AI Algorithms - Neuroscience News

#artificialintelligence

Summary: Researchers trained an AI to determine which psychotropic agent a zebrafish had been exposed to based on the animal's behaviors and locomotion patterns. Neuroscientists from St. Petersburg University, led by Professor Allan V. Kalueff, in collaboration with an international team of IT specialists, have become the first in the world to apply the artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms to phenotype zebrafish psychoactive drug responses. They managed to train AI to determine--by fish response--which psychotropic agents were used in the experiment. The research findings are published in the journal Progress in Neuro-Psychopharmacology and Biological Psychiatry. The zebrafish (Danio rerio) is a freshwater bony fish that is presently the second-most (after mice) used model organism in biomedical research.
