Zebrafish provide unique opportunities for optogenetic studies of behavior. Here, we review the most recent work using optogenetic and imaging approaches to study the neuronal circuits controlling movements in the transparent zebrafish. Specifically, we focus on what we have learned from zebrafish about neuronal migration, network formation and behavioral control, and what the future may hold.
