Abstract

Yoshimatsu et al. show that larval zebrafish rely on single UV cones at a time to support visual prey capture. For this, zebrafish combine molecular, cellular, and circuit tuning to regionally boost detectability of prey in their acute zone. The mechanisms of this specialization tally with those of the primate fovea.
