Investigations of the neurobiology of the lateral line sensory system and its use in feeding and behaviour in Antarctic fish
Entry ID: K012_1989_1992_NZ_1

Abstract: The anatomy, physiology and behaviour of Antarctic fishes and their use of the lateral line sensory system was investigated over three field seasons. Methodologies for comparing lateral line function with anatomy were investigated and a sensitivity measure and the form of the frequency response curve were used to measure response properties of the different lateral line end organs within the fish. ...
