Summary
Abstract: A study of predator-prey interaction was focussed into an investigation of non-visual sensory interaction between Pagothenia borchgrevinki and its prey. Recordings were made from sensory neurons of the anterior lateral line which responded to water vibrations. Frequency/response analysis of lateral line sense organs was determined by stimulating the water with a vibrating sphere. Simultaneous recordings of crustacean swimming and lateral line nerve activity were recorded to determine if the lateral line is capable of detecting prey.
