TLDR
Electron micrographs have revealed that the pit organs in elasmobranchs are indeed free neuromasts, and their functional and behavioural role(s), however, are yet to be investigated. Expand
The ocular tapetum lucidum: A model system for interdisciplinary studies in elasmobranch biology
TLDR
Evidence is presented that indicates that control is located within the eye itself and is most probably a function of the retina, suggesting that a complete understanding of ocular tapetum lucidum structure and function awaits the results of studies by workers in various fields of elasmobranch biology. Expand
Group reproductive behaviors in free-living nurse sharks, Ginglymostoma cirratum
TLDR
Fifty mating events in free-living nurse sharks were observed over a nine-day period in the Dry Tortugas island cluster in the Florida Keys and showed the presence of free, nonpackaged sperm cells. Expand
Morphology of the macula neglecta in sharks of the genus Carcharhinus
TLDR
Structures along a possible sound transmission path to the ear are described, but main consideration is given to the structure of the macula neglecta. Expand
Lectin binding to olfactory system in a shark, Scyliorhinus canicula.
TLDR
The lectin staining patterns indicate that the membranes of small-spotted catshark olfactory neurons had glycoproteins with alpha-galactose residues, which could be related to modulation of the cell-cell interactions in the o aroma system. Expand
Retinal projections in the lemon shark (Negaprion brevirostris).
Modifications of the Nauta method were used to reveal the optic pathways of Negaprion brevirostris following unilateral enucleation. Postoperative survival times ranged from 7 to 49
The elasmobranch spiracular organ
TLDR
The spiracular organ functions as a sensitive joint receptor in the little skate and the smooth dogfish because local deformations of the cupula are sufficient to excite or inhibit primary afferent firing, and volume changes in the Spiracular organ as a whole are not necessary. Expand
Prey discrimination and electroreception in the stingray Dasyatis sabina
TLDR
Goodness of fit analysis of data indicate that D. sabina is electroreceptive, but there was no evidence to suggest that the stingray was able to discriminate between the two types of animals by the use of its electrosensory system alone. Expand
The elasmobranch spiracular organ. II. Physiological studies.
TLDR
The spiracular organ functions as a sensitive joint receptor in the little skate and the smooth dogfish because local deformations of the cupula are sufficient to excite or inhibit primary afferent firing, and volume changes in the Spiracular organ as a whole are not necessary. Expand
The distribution of the olfactory tracts in the bullhead catfish, Lctalurus nebulosus
  • T. Finger
  • Biology, Medicine
  • The Journal of comparative neurology
  • 1975
TLDR
Using degeneration staining methods, central projections of the olfactory tracts in the bullhead catfish, Ictalurus nebulosus were studied and three major terminal fields were found: lateral, medial and central‐posterior complex. Expand
