Sensory System Affects Orientational Strategy in a Short-Range Spatial Task in Blind and Eyed Morphs of the Fish, Astyanax fasciatus

Abstract:

In the concerted effort to discover the mechanisms that animals use to orient through space, little attention has been given to the role of the sensory system on shaping orientational strategy. This study tests whether animals with different sensory systems use different mechanisms to orient. The characin fish Astyanax fasciatus (Cuvier, 1819) exists in two morphs in the same species - a number of populations of blind cave fish that rely on their lateral line to gain fine-scale information fr...
