Gene expression underlying enhanced, steroid-dependent auditory sensitivity of hair cell epithelium in a vocal fish

Abstract

Successful animal communication depends on a receiver’s ability to detect a sender’s signal. Exemplars of adaptive sender-receiver coupling include acoustic communication, often important in the context of seasonal reproduction. During the reproductive summer season, both male and female midshipman fish (Porichthys notatus) exhibit similar increases in the… (More)
