...Martin Gottwald; Raya A. Bott; Gerhard von der Emde ABSTRACT During active electrolocation, the weakly electric fish Gnathonemus petersii judges the distance and impedance of nearby objects. Capacitive objects, which modulate local amplitude and waveform of the fish's electric probing signals, cast...

...Gerhard Von Der Emde ABSTRACT Weakly electric fish can perceive electric properties of objects by monitoring the responses of their epidermal electroreceptors (mormyromasts) to their own electric organ discharges (EOD), a process known as active electrolocation. Mormyrid fish can distinguish...
