Sensory influence on navigation in the weakly electric fish Gnathonemus petersii

Abstract:

Most animals possess multiple sensory systems, which can be used during navigation. Different senses obtain environmental information on different spatial scales and thus provide a different basis for efficient navigation. Here we used the weakly electric fish Gnathonemus petersii to investigate how different sensory inputs influence the navigational strategy and whether landmark information can be transferred flexibly between two sensory systems. Fish were trained to swim through a maze usin...
