Abstract

Eigenmannia virescens is a South American freshwater species with an electric organ discharge (EOD) of the wave type. This social fish's EOD is masked by the intense noise from close-by conspecifics. In spite of this, Eigenmannia detects external signals at lowest thresholds for a vertebrate octavolateralis sensory system; furthermore, Eigenmannia discriminates between stimulus waveforms which is ...
