Cover legend

Zebrafish embryo with intracerebral hemorrhage at 48 hours post fertilization. Exposure of zebrafish embryos to atorvastatin disrupts vascular stability and elicits hemorrhages in the brain. Hemorrhages are seen under a dissecting microscope as pooling of red blood cells within brain cavities. For more information, see paper by Eisa-Beygi and Rezaei pp. 119 in the current issue.
