Bratton, Bradford O. and Kramer, Bernd (1989) Patterns of the electric organ discharge during courtship and spawning in the mormyrid fish, Pollimyrus isidori. Behavioral Ecology and Sociobiology 24 (6), pp. 349-368.
Pollimyrus isidori's electric organ discharge (EOD) is of the pulse type. Patterns of EOD intervals were investigated prior to, during and following spawning behaviors as related with overt behaviors, and with the sound production by the nestbuilding male. Prior to the time of reproduction, isolated and socially interacting fish (n=15) showed characteristic discharge interval patterns for ...
