WHILE investigating orientation mechanisms in fish we are making a detailed analysis of “spontaneous” locomotor behaviour of naive animals in controlled conditions. Movements are monitored in a tank measuring 5.0 × 5.0 × 0.5 m in the bottom of which is embedded a matrix of 1,936 photoconductive cells on 10 cm centres. The linear resolution for the smallest target (3 mm diameter) which ocan elicit an adequate response by a photocell is 10 cm. The angular resolution for a fish 30 cm long, the… CONTINUE READING
