The larval zebrafish has many properties that make it an excellent model system for studying brain development. These include the ability to record real-time activity from hundreds of neurons simultaneously. I will talk about some of the ways we've been analysing and modelling the data produced from our own zebrafish experiments. These draw on a wide range of mathematical techniques, including amongst others statistical estimation and graph theory. We hope that in the longer term these results will help inform treatments for neurological disorders, the design of brain-computer interfaces, and improved forms of artificial intelligence
