Published: 15 October 2011
...Mana Mirjany; Thomas Preuss; Donald S. Faber SUMMARY Goldfish ( Carassius auratus ) escape responses to sudden auditory stimuli are mediated by a pair of reticulospinal neurons, the Mauthner (M-) cells, which integrate mechanosensory inputs from the inner ear and the lateral line (LL) to initiate...

...Mana Mirjany; Donald S. Faber SUMMARY The goldfish Mauthner (M-) cells, a bilateral pair of reticulospinal neurons, initiate the auditory evoked escape behavior of teleosts. In an open field the fish reliably turns away from the sound source. This implies that the M-cells are capable of a decision...

.... The teleost C-start is triggered by an action potential in one of the two Mauthner (M) cells. To correlate C-start behavior with electrophysiology, extracellular recordings were obtained from the surface of the medulla oblongata in the hindbrain,close to the M-axons, in freely swimming goldfish monitored...

.... We examined intraspecific diversity in withdrawal behavior and muscle activity patterns of the rope fish, Erpetoichthys calabaricu s, in response to stimulation of the head and the tail. In addition, we describe the anatomy of the Mauthner cells and their axon caps, structures that are generally...

...Dave Featherstone; Charles D. Drewes; Joel R. Coats ABSTRACT In teleosts, a startle response occurs when one of a pair of Mauthner cells (M-cells) originating in the fish hindbrain is excited by sensory afferents and fires a single action potential. This action potential propagates caudally along...
