Age-related changes in ampullary and tuberous receptor organ morphology were studied in six species of gymnotiform weakly electric fish. Cheek skin was silver-stained, whole-mounted, and viewed under Nomarski differential interference contrast optics. The ampullary receptor units of all species show an increasing number of receptor organs per afferent fiber with fish size, presumably the result of addition of newly formed receptor organs. Ampullary units composing over a dozen organs were… CONTINUE READING
