  • The electrosensory lateral line lobe (ELL) is the first order electrosensory processing station in the brain of the electric fish Apteronotus leptorhynchus, and is the only nucleus to receive input f rom electroreceptors on the skin. The ELL is subdivided into three maps: the centromedial segment (CMS), centrolateral segment (CLS), and lateral segment (LS) which receive input f rom tuberous electroreceptors processing high frequency signals. Two feedback pathways f rom higher order nuclei, the… CONTINUE READING
