The use of MEMRI to study neural networks and cardiac function has rapidly expanded in recent years. Zebrafish are rapidly emerging as a major new animal model for animal research as they have many unique qualities such as the ability to regenerate neuronal and cardiac tissues. The ability to perform in vivo MEMRI studies in zebrafish introduces this animal model to new areas of research.
