Sensory systems convey environmental information to the brain. A comprehensive description of neuronal anatomy and connectivity is essential to understand how sensory information is acquired, transmitted, and processed. Here we describe a high-resolution live imaging technique to quantify the architecture of sensory neurons in larval zebrafish. This approach is ideal to assess neuronal-circuit plasticity and regeneration.
