The neural biology of Antarctic fish: Measurements of the neural activity from fish semicircular canals in response to head movement
Entry ID: K012_1983_1984_NZ_1

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The input and outputs of a well defined reflex pathway (the vestibulo-ocular reflex - VOR) was described in Antarctic fish to assess the mechanisms of neural cold adaptation at low temperatures. The neural activity from fish semicircular canals was recorded in response to head movement. As the reflex is bisynaptic, with two intercellular contacts and one interneuron within the central nervous ... View entire text
