Central sensory neurons often respond selectively to particular combinations of stimulus attributes, but we know little about the underlying cellular mechanisms. The weakly electric fish Gymnarchus discriminates the sign of the frequency difference (Df) between a neighbor's electric organ discharge (EOD) and its own EOD by comparing temporal patterns of amplitude modulation (AM) and phase modulation (PM). Sign-selective neurons in the midbrain respond preferentially to either positive frequency… CONTINUE READING
