SOUND LOCALIZATION

Project: Research project

Project Details

Description

DESCRIPTION: The goal of this study is to study directional hearing in
fish, using the sleeper goby as the model. It has five aims: 1. Determine
the structural polarity of sensory hair cells in each otolithic organ in 3D
space using LEM and SEM. 2. Determine if individual end organs play
differential roles in encoding sound direction along different planes. 3.
Make structure-function relationships by dye-filling ganglion cells from
which directional sensitivity had been assessed by intracellular recordings.
4. Identify any particular direction in which the fish is particularly
sensitive and measure MAAs. 5. Determine the contribution of each end
organ to the pattern of directional hearing.
