Acoustically-evoked escape behaviors were compared between goldfish (Carassius auratus), a hearing specialist, and the cichlid Haplochromis burtoni, a hearing nonspecialist. Fish were startled with compressive and rarefying, stimuli presented alone or together, and with compressive pulses preceded by a visual cue or after exposure to cobalt, an inhibitor of lateral line-innervated neuromast hair cells. These acoustic startle stimuli can evoke Mauthner neuron firing and are similar to but weaker… CONTINUE READING
