Functioning of catfish electroreceptors: Bursting discharge pattern of Kryptopterus electroreceptors elicited by microelectrode impalement

Journal Article (Journal Article)

1. I. The time course of the spontaneous discharge of Kryptopterus ampullary electroreceptors may change from regular to bursting upon impalement by a glass microelectrode. 2. 2. The burst duration is very constant relative to the interburst interval, during spontaneous fluctuations as well as in response to low-frequency stimulation. 3. 3. Implications for the current model of the functioning of catfish electroreceptors are discussed. © 1984.
