I am excited to have completed my first experiment of my postdoc here in Norway, working on a new host-parasite system: the zebrafish and its brain-infecting parasite Pseudoloma neurophilia. There is still so much that we don´t know about these nasty microsporidians and how they impact the physiology and behavior of their hosts. Through this study, we will learn about how the parasite alters their hosts metabolism, following acute and long term infection. We will then link this data to each individual´s neurochemistry in their brain (looking particularly at dopamine and serotonin). There is still a fair bit of post-experiment tissue and data analyses to do but we are looking forward to the results!
