The response properties of anterior lateral line afferent neurones in Trematomus bernacchii were recorded extracellularly while stimulating the fish with unidirectional water flows of varying velocity. Afferent neurone responses were either flow-sensitive or flow-insensitive. Flow-sensitive neurones showed linear increases in response magnitude with increasing flow rate and tonic non-adapting response properties. These findings indicate that flow-sensitive afferent neurones originate from… CONTINUE READING
