We were unable to devise a comparable approach to compromise just the trunk lateral line because embedding the head in agarose prohibited the operculum from circulating the gills. We additionally performed a sham treatment where fish were anesthetized and embedded...

This multisensory behavior can reportedly involve visual, vestibular, tactile and lateral line cues. However, the precise...

According to the predictions of the model, larvae direct their escape away from the side of their body exposed to more rapid flow. This suggests that prey...
