Using the feedback stimulation method, we measured the tuning frequencies of the JO sensory neurons. Here we present electrophysiological evidence that male...

.... Chemoreceptor Serotonin Acetylcholine ASR Evolution Feedback The regulation of O 2 uptake, and its matching with metabolic requirements, are critical factors in the survival of all vertebrates. For most aquatic organisms that are incapable of using air as a respiratory medium, there is a reliance...

... JAR behavior in terms of a dynamical system model has not been achieved at least in part due to the fact that ‘avoidance’ behaviors are both intrinsically unstable and nonlinear. We overcame the instability of the JAR in Eigenmannia virescens by closing a feedback loop around the behavioral response...

Two sensory modalities, the visual system and the mechanosensory halteres, are likely sources of such feedback because they are sensitive to angular velocities within the range experienced during...

... method, the pattern of current flow during a gymnotid EOD is changed selectively at distinct phases of the EOD so that currents generated by known electrocyte groups are affected. We have studied the roles played by the various currents for the detection of novel feedback at the trunk/tail region of the...

We therefore conclude that intensity compensation does not rely on feedback information from received intensity, but instead follows a stereotyped...

The gain of this proprioceptive feedback system is determined by external stimuli changing the behavioural...

The edge cell in the lamprey spinal cord serves as an intraspinal mechanoreceptor. The ability to generate a...
