The Atlas of Early Zebrafish Brain Development is the first neuroanatomical expression atlas of important genetic and immunohistochemical markers of a vertebrate model system. In-situ hybridized and immunostained preparations of complete series of brain sections reveal markers of the fundamental stages in the life history of neuronal cells (proliferation/determination, migration
