Scientists are currently in pursuit of treatments that could overcome multiple heart diseases including the dreaded broken heart syndrome.
Researchers have discovered that zebrafish -- the two-buck wonders in pet stores -- may actually hold the key to do full spinal cord repair.
Evolution has come a long way throughout history. A breakthrough study reveals that human fingers may have evolved from fish fins as the two came from a common cellular origin.
These fish, which are reportedly close ancestors of humans, can have athritis, too. What does it mean for us humans?
Harvard researchers created a mathematical model that helps explain how animals get their stripes and why they are oriented in certain patterns.
A recent study has shown that fish respond to stress with a slight body temperature increase.
To adapt to changing environments, fish have evolved with an enzyme researchers refer to as Cyp27c1, which is closely linked to vitamin A and known to promote good vision in low light.
With spring projected to be shorter than ever this year, summer is fast approaching, and that means it's about time to lather up on sunscreen. And now that scientists have discovered that fish can produce their own sunscreen, it has inspired them to make the product for humans.
Bisphenol A, a chemical known as BPA that's commonly used in consumer products, reportedly affects brain development in young zebrafish, causing concern that it can also negatively impact human brains still developing in the womb, according to new research.
Zebrafish are easily recognized by their characteristic stripes, for which they are named, and now researchers explain how they can just as easily "erase" them, a new study says.
Zebrafish owe their name to the beautiful striped blue and gold pattern they adorn, and for the first time scientists have gained a deeper understanding of how these fish form their characteristic colors, a new study describes.
A group of neuroscientists are using a new revolutionary tool called "Thunder" to monitor brain activity, which provides large data sets at a tremendous rate - a task that was once difficult for one computer alone to handle.
For the first time, scientists have seen the brain activity of a living fish watching its prey.
