Abstract

Eigenmannia's frequency and intensity discrimination thresholds were determined for a range of seven frequencies (50-1700Hz), centered on a fish's individual discharge frequency, using a conditioned go/no-go paradigm. The threshold criterion was '50% correct choices' (of the rewarded stimulus, S+, over the unrewarded stimulus, S—); this was validated by testing for statistically significantly ...
