In many vertebrates parallel processing in topographically ordered maps is essential for efficient sensory processing. In the active electrosensory pathway of mormyrids afferent input is processed in two parallel somatotopically ordered hindbrain maps of the electrosensory lateral line lobe (ELL), the dorsolateral zone (DLZ), and the medial zone (MZ).

The Electrosensory Lateral Line lobe (ELL) is the first central target where the electrosensory information encoded in the spatiotemporal pattern electroreceptor afferent discharges is processed. These afferents encode the minute amplitude changes of the basal electric field through both a change in latency and discharge rate. In the ELL the time and(More)
In the developing brain, training-induced emergence of direction selectivity and plasticity of orientation tuning appear to be widespread phenomena. These are found in the visual pathway across different classes of vertebrates. Moreover, short-term plasticity of orientation tuning in the adult brain has been demonstrated in several species of mammals.(More)
