... to electric sources, which led to the discovery of electroreception ( Shackelford, 1941 ) and was later characterized as a ‘field line-tracking’ behavior ( Davis and Hopkins, 1988 ; Hopkins et al., 1997 ; Westby, 1974 ). The experiments were carried out during the summer months, after fish had adapted...

... a single parameter in the stimulus waveform. The finding of waveform distortion sensitivity is relevant because it may contribute to: (a) enhance electroreceptive range in the peripheral ‘electrosensory field’, (b) a better identification of living prey at the ‘foveal electrosensory field’ and (c) detect...
