Selective and Reversible Blocking of the Lateral Line in Freshwater Fish
Fish possess two separate systems for detection of low-level sound and water motions in the low-frequency range: the inner ear and the lateral line. The relative roles of these systems in normal fish… Expand
Sound Detection Mechanisms and Capabilities of Teleost Fishes
This chapter, written from the perspective of four authors who have been studying fish bioacoustics for over 120 years (cumulative!), examines the major issues of the field. Each topic is put in some… Expand
Low frequency hearing in cephalopods
SummaryClassical conditioning was employed to test the sensitivity of cephalopods to vibrations between 1 and 100 Hz generated in a standing wave acoustic tube. The animals were trained to associate… Expand
Field studies of hearing in two species of flatfish Pleuronectes platessa (L.) and limanda limanda (L.) (family pleuronectidae).
1. 1. Field measurements of hearing in Pleuronectes platessa and Limanda limanda show that they are sensitive to sounds in the frequency range from 30 to 250 Hz with greatest sensitivity around… Expand
Awareness reactions and avoidance responses to sound in juvenile Atlantic salmon, Salmo salar L.
The possibility of using intense sound as a deterrent for juvenile Atlantic salmon (Sulmo salar L.) was studied by recording both physiological awareness reactions in an acoustic tube and behavioural… Expand
The Lateral Line and Sound Reception
- O. Sand
A sensory function of the lateral line organ was first postulated by Jacobson (1813) on the basis of its extensive innervation, and he suggested that the organ was sensitive to mechanical… Expand
Electrophysiology of excitable endocrine cells.
Voltage clamp analysis of two inward current mechanisms in the egg cell membrane of a starfish
Ionic mechanisms of excitation were studied in the immature egg cell membrane of a starfish, Mediaster aequalis, by analyzing membrane currents during voltage clamp. The cell membrane shows two… Expand
Avoidance responses to low frequency sound in downstream migrating Atlantic salmon smolt, Salmo salar
The possibility of using intense sound as an acoustic barrier for downstream migrating smolt of the Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) was studied by observing, the reactions of smolt to 10 and 150 Hz… Expand
