Abstract

The electric organ discharge (EOD) of the South American knifefish Eigenmannia sp. is a permanently present wave signal of usually constant amplitude and frequency (similar to a sine wave). A fish perceives discharges of other fish as a modulation of its own. At frequency identity (∆F = 0 Hz) the phase difference between a fish's own electric discharge and that of another fish affects the ...
