Abstract

The electrosensory system is ideally suited for the integration of behavioral and cellular approaches and, therefore, has led to the most detailed explanations of natural behaviors at the single-cell level. The electric sense shares basic principles in the coding of sensory information with more advanced sensory modalities and thus provides a convenient model system for studying neuronal mechanisms of information processing in general.
