Phase-locking neurons in the electrosensory lateral line lobe (ELL) of a weakly electric fish, Gymnarchus niloticus, fire an action potential in response to each cycle of the sinusoidal electrosensory signal (350-500 Hz) created by the fish's own electric organ. The exact firing times of the phase-locking neurons are altered (time-shifted) by capacitance of electrolocation objects or by electric organ discharges of other individuals. The magnitude of the time shifts depends on the location of… CONTINUE READING
