The team, led by Maurizio Porfiri, Institute Professor at NYU Tandon, devised a novel approach to getting physically separated fish to interact with each other, leading to insights about what kinds of cues influence social behavior. The innovative system, called ‘behavioral teleporting,’ transfers the complete inventory of behaviors and actions (ethogram) of a live zebrafish onto a remotely located robotic replica swimming with another live fish.
