Abstract

Eigenmannia's jamming avoidance response (JAR) is a frequency change of its electric organ discharge (EOD) in response to an electric stimulus of similar frequency (small AF; AF = FFlgh — FStlm). It is assumed that the response to an undamped stimulus, AR = FRMponM. — FRMI, is stereotyped and non-habituating, and improves the fish's electrolocation performance in the presence of a jamming ...
