    Insights into electrosensory organ development, physiology and evolution from a lateral line-enriched transcriptome

    Melinda S Modrell et al.
    An unbiased transcriptomic approach reveals that developing paddlefish electrosensory organs express genes essential for mechanosensory hair cell development and synaptic transmission, and identifies candidates for mediating electroreceptor development and function.

    Peripheral sensory coding through oscillatory synchrony in weakly electric fish

    Christa A Baker et al.
    Sensory receptors encode stimuli by transiently synchronizing ongoing electrical oscillations, conferring enhanced sensitivity to communication signals produced by large groups of conspecifics.

    Neural activity in a hippocampus-like region of the teleost pallium is associated with active sensing and navigation

    Haleh Fotowat et al.
    Sparse firing in a hippocampus-like structure of the teleost telencephalon is linked to spatial navigation and active sensing.

    Feedback optimizes neural coding and perception of natural stimuli

    Chengjie G Huang et al.
    Neurophysiological and behavioral approaches reveal how coordinated input from descending pathways shapes the tuning properties of electrosensory neurons in order to optimize coding of natural stimuli through temporal whitening.

    Stimulus background influences phase invariant coding by correlated neural activity

    Michael G Metzen, Maurice J Chacron
    Building on previous work (Metzen et al., 2016), a combination of neurophysiological and behavioral approaches reveals that changes in the background strongly impacts invariant coding and perception of behaviourally relevant signals.

    Generalization of learned responses in the mormyrid electrosensory lobe

    Conor Dempsey et al.
    In vivo recordings and computational modeling of the electrosensory lobe of mormyrid fish provide a circuit-level description of how learning generalizes to new situations.

    The synaptic ribbon is critical for sound encoding at high rates and with temporal precision

    Philippe Jean et al.
    The synaptic ribbon regulates calcium channel clustering and proper vesicle dynamics at cochlear inner hair cells to ensure precise sound encoding.

    Detection of transient synchrony across oscillating receptors by the central electrosensory system of mormyrid fish

    Alejandro Vélez, Bruce A Carlson
    Building on previous work (Baker et al., 2015), further evidence is reported for a novel mechanism for sensory coding based on the detection of oscillatory synchrony among peripheral receptors.
