Brain regions participating in the control ofEigenmannia's electric organ discharge frequency were localized by electrical microstimulation and anatomically identified by means of horseradish peroxidase deposition. A diencephalic region was found which, when stimulated, caused electric organ discharge (EOD) frequency increases of similar magnitude and time course as the frequency increases seen during the jamming avoidance response. Single unit recordings from this region revealed one cell type… CONTINUE READING
