  • Summary1.A spontaneous EOD response to sound is described in two gymnotoids of the pulseElectricOrganDischarge (EOD) type,Hypopomus andGymnotus, and in one mormyrid,Brienomyrus (Figs. 2–4).2.In all three species, the EOD response to the sound onset was a transient EOD rate increase. In the low EOD rateHypopomus (3–6 EODs/s at rest) the first, second, or third EOD interval following sound onset was significantly shorter than the average EOD interval before stimulation. The shortest latency found… CONTINUE READING
