... investigation. Here we used threespine stickleback ( Gasterosteus aculeatus ) to investigate the influence of lateral line asymmetry on laterality during lab simulations of three mechanosensation-dependent behaviours: predator evasion, prey localization and rheotaxis. We recorded the response of stickleback...

...Matthew Kulpa; Joseph Bak-Coleman; Sheryl Coombs ABSTRACT When encountering a unidirectional flow, many fish exhibit an unconditioned orienting response known as rheotaxis. This multisensory behavior can reportedly involve visual, vestibular, tactile and lateral line cues. However, the precise...

...Joseph Bak-Coleman; Sheryl Coombs Rheotaxis is a robust, multisensory behavior with many potential benefits for fish and other aquatic animals. Visual (optic flow) cues appear to be sufficient for rheotaxis, but other sensory cues can clearly compensate for the loss of vision. The role of various...

Treatment with cobalt chloride, a known blocker of superficial neuromast function, significantly reduces the tendency to move downstream, but does not alter...

.... To examine this question, the orienting response of mottled sculpin was used to measure threshold sensitivity to a nearby artificial prey (a 50 Hz vibrating sphere) as a function of background noise level (unidirectional currents of different flow velocities). Because many fish show unconditioned rheotaxis...

The results demonstrate that a simple model combining chemotropotaxis (simultaneous, spatial comparisons of chemical signals) and odor-stimulated upstream movement (rheotaxis) is sufficient to explain the efficient...
