Hearing sensitivity and the anatomy of the auditory system in the clown knifefish, Notopterus chitala, were studied using behavioural techniques and scanning electron microscopy. While many structural features of the inner ear were similar to those found in other teleost species, the saccular endorgan in Notopterus was unusual in having three discrete epithelial regions. These regions could be distinguished from one another by regional differences in portions of the otolith overlaying them, by… CONTINUE READING
