1. Single unit recordings were made from neurons in the saccular branch of the eighth nerve in the catfish,Ictalurus punctatus. Spontaneous activity varied from zero to 184 spikes/s among the units recorded. Non-spontaneous units and three types of spontaneous activity were observed including regular, irregular and bursting. Non-spontaneous units were most frequently encountered. 2. Iso-intensity curves were used to examine the frequency response areas of the neurons. The best frequencies of… CONTINUE READING
