This chapter discusses the use of the zebrafish as a tool to study the activity of genes implicated in autism and other mental health disorders. This tool will be extremely useful in meeting the challenge of assaying activity of human gene variants connected to autism. In addition, the fish provides an outstanding whole animal vertebrate system, which can be used in small molecule screens for modulation of gene function associated with autism.
