In mammals, birds and amphibians the neural pathways controlling sound production descend from higher centers in the forebrain, whereas in fishes only brainstem and spinal centers have been explicitly implicated in sound production. We now report that electrical stimulation of the forebrain of the oyster toadfish (Opsanus tau) readily evokes both the agonistic grunt and the courtship boatwhistle. Boatwhistles are more realistic than ones previously evoked from lower centers. Positive… CONTINUE READING
