While particle motion is thought to directly stimulate the inner ear of most fish species, it is difficult to measure and might not be predictable from pressure measurements in a small tank. It is therefore important to replicate experiments conducted relative to pressure measurements using stimuli of known particle motion, to ensure that unmeasured components of the stimulus field do not produce misleading frequency response profiles. The frequency sensitivity of the inner ear of the plainfin… CONTINUE READING
