Responses of single neurons in the lateral lobes of the medulla to stimulation of the electroreceptive system by homogeneous sinusoidal electrical and magnetic fields were investigated in acute experiments on the skateRaja radiata. Thresholds of neuronal responses to electrical stimulation varied from 0.03 to 10 µV/cm. The optimal frequency ranges for electrical and magnetic reception were in the regions of 0.05–5 and 2–3 Hz respectively. The possible mechanisms and functional significance of… CONTINUE READING
