1. Electrophysiological recordings from individual auditory sensilla in the tettigoniid (Caedicia simplex) ear (Fig. 1) show that spike potentials of two distinct amplitudes occur in the sensory neuron (Fig. 2). Generally, the smaller of the two classes of spike is observed as an inflection on the rising phase of the larger spike. In cases where the larger spike fails or is blocked, the smaller spike becomes distinct. In the attachment cell of the sensillum, negative-going monophasic, or… CONTINUE READING
