Abstract

Fish of the family Mormyridae emit weak, pulse-like electric organ discharges (EODs). The discharge rhythm is variable, but the waveform of the EOD is constant for each fish, with species- and individual characteristics. The ability of Pollimyrus isidori and Gnathonemuspetersii (Mormyridae) to discriminate between different EOD waveforms was tested using a differential conditioning procedure. ...
