    Fish Physiology Vol 05-Sensory Systems and Electric Organs

    Sensory Systems and Electric Organs
    [Fish Physiology Series - Vol 05]

    By William S Hoar, David J Randall




    Pages: 615
    Publisher: Academic Press
    Edition: 1971
    Language: English
    ISBN: 978-0123504050

    Description

    Volume V of this treatise is concerned with sensory systems and some aspects of function of the central nervous system. Sensory systems have been extensively studied in fish not only because of a wide general interest in the behavioral and sensory physiology of this group but also because, in many instances, fish are technically suitable for general studies of sensory systems and have certain receptors not present in other groups. Electroreceptors fall into this category; these receptors are unique to fishes, and studies of this system have application to receptor function in general. Electric organs, an effector rather than receptor system, are discussed in this volume because of the functional relationships between electroreception and electric organ discharge. The Mauthner neuron which is another system studied both to increase understanding of neuronal organization in fish and because the Mauthner cell constitutes a useful preparation for studying synaptic function and the integration of activity in neuronal networks in general is discussed in another chapter. Neurophysiology, particularly sensory physiology, is a very active area of biology. The chapters in this volume, perhaps more than in other volumes, can only present a summary of the present state of science in this rapidly expanding and developing field. This volume reflects some of the excitement and activity in sensory physiology and will be a useful introduction to students in this area of biology.

    Enjoy!
