Peripheral auditory physiology in the lemon shark: Evidence of parallel otolithic and non-otolithic sound detection

Abstract

The intact ear of the lemon shark,Negaprion brevirostris, is sensitive to sound at low frequencies by electrophysiological criteria. The click-evoked compound action potential of the eighth nerve has a dynamic range of at least 30 dB, with a latency shortening of 120 to 170 μs/dB and an amplitude increase of 4 to 11%/dB relative to a nearly saturated… (More)
