1. The sensory basis of sound and vibration perception has been studied neurophysiologically in the ghost crab Ocypode. Experiments were carried out both on neural responses from the brains of intact animals and on nerve responses recorded from isolated walking legs. 2. Hearing curves for two species of Ocypode from about 800 Hz to 3000 Hz showed maximum sensitivities in the 1–2 kHz band. 3. The substratum vibration sensitivity curve for Ocypode ceratophthalmus extended to 5000 Hz. 4. Synchrony… CONTINUE READING
