Extracellular recordings using glass microelectrodes were made from the ophthalmic and supraorbital nerves of a transequatorial migratory bird, the bobolink. The rate of electrical activity was modified in 15% of the spontaneously active units by earth-strength alterations of the horizontal or vertical component of the ambient magnetic field using box coils. Responses to magnetic stimulation included augmentation or inhibition of spontaneous activity, or an ON-OFF or OFF response. Responses to… CONTINUE READING
