We determined how the Mauthner cell and other large, fast-conducting reticulospinal neurons of the goldfish responded to acoustic stimuli likely to be important in coordinating body movements underlying escape. The goal was to learn about the neurophysiological responses to these stimuli and the underlying processes of sensorimotor integration. We compared the intracellularly recorded postsynaptic responses (PSPs) of 9 Mauthner cells and a population of 12 other reticulospinal neurons to… CONTINUE READING
