Electroreceptive fish detect nearby objects by processing the information contained in the pattern of electric currents through their skin. In weakly electric fish, these currents arise from a self-generated field (the electric organ discharge), depending on the electrical properties of the surrounding medium. The electric image can be defined as the pattern of transepidermal voltage distributed over the receptive surface. To understand electrolocation it is necessary to know how electric image… CONTINUE READING
