Weakly electric fish are commonly found in the freshwater systems of South America and Africa [1,2].These nocturnal fish use a unique sensory modality, called the “electrosense,” to help them navigate, communicate, and find prey in the absence of strong visual cues [].The electrosense involves a specialized electric organ that emits an electric discharge resulting in a dipole Cited by:

Cited by: Jamming avoidance response (JAR) is a behavior performed by some species of weakly electric JAR occurs when two electric fish with wave discharges meet – if their discharge frequencies are very similar, each fish will shift its discharge frequency to increase the difference between the two fish's discharge frequencies.

By doing this, both fish prevent jamming of their sense of.

Electroreception or electroception is the biological ability to perceive natural electrical stimuli. It has been observed almost exclusively in aquatic or amphibious animals, because water is a much better conductor than air. The known exceptions are the monotremes (echidnas and platypuses), cockroaches, and oreception is used in electrolocation (detecting objects) and for.

Behavior. Among the many electrosensory-related behaviors observed in these fish, one of the best characterized from a neuroethological perspective is the jamming avoidance response (JAR).Certain weakly electric fish with sinusoidal, wave-type electric organ discharge (EOD) waveforms reflexively shift their EOD frequency away from interfering frequencies of nearby conspecifics, in order to.

Electrolocation. Electric fish can detect and localize objects in their environment using the active electric sense. This capability is called mechanisms of electrolocation are similar in all electric fish, but we illustrate the principles in Apteronotus albifrons (black ghost knifefish), the fish that we study in the lab.

– Electroreception arose as a 6th sense in aquatic vertebrates as a means for. Electric fish employ active electrolocation to detect objects that are less than 12 cm away and have electric properties that are different from those of the surrounding water.

A robotic fish has been developed to create a mixed bio-hybrid system made up of weakly electric fish and a mobile dummy fish. Weakly electric fish are capable of interacting with each other via. Some fish can only sense electricity but cannot produce electricity.

These fishes are also categorized as electric fishes. They are sharks, rays, skates, catfish, and paddle fish. These fish can sense very weak electricity generated by prey animals.

So, sharks can find a small fish buried in sand by weak electricity given off by the prey. This. Walter Heiligenberg (Janu – September 8, ) is best known for his contribution to neuroethology through his work on one of the best neurologically understood behavioral patterns in vertebrate, Eigenmannia (Zupanc and Bullock ).
