Title: What can fishes teach us about the brain?

Abstract: Fishes have diverged in evolution from the mammalian linage some 450million years ago and as a result fishes’ brain structure is different from thefundamental design of the mammalian, reptilian and avian brains. This raisesthe question what can we learn from the ability of fishes to solve differenttasks. I will discuss aspects of how visual processing is implemented in thearcherfish brain and how navigation is implemented in the goldfish brain.
