Copper regulates rest-activity cycles through the locus coeruleus-norepinephrine system, Published online: 04 June 2018; doi:10.1038/s41589-018-0062-z

Copper contributes to regulating zebrafish rest–activity cycles through the locus coeruleus system by modulating the biosynthesis of norepinephrine; brain copper deficiency leads to lower levels of both synaptic norepinephrine and daytime activity.
