Dysregulated activity in the stress system is linked to early life stress, chronic stress and depression. To understand how this dysregulation occurs, we need to know how the multiple parts of the system coordinate their activity. This is challenging in mammals as the system’s parts are anatomically distant. We will overcome this issue using zebrafish, which will enable us to perform live imaging of the system’s multiple parts in an intact animal for the first time.
