  • Constitutes an important contemporary reference work on the lateral line system
  • A┬ánatural compliment to a number of books in the SHAR series including those edited by Webb, Dallos, and Eatock
  • Collects two decades of research into the lateral line

The Lateral Line System provides an overview of the key concepts and issues surrounding the development, evolution, neurobiology, and function of the lateral line, a fascinating yet somewhat enigmatic flow-sensing system. The book examines the historical precedence for linking the auditory and lateral line systems, its structure and development, use of the lateral line system of zebrafish as a model system, physical principles governing the response properties of the lateral line, the behavioral relevance of this sensory system to the lives of fish, and an examination of how this information is shaped and encoded by the peripheral and central nervous systems.
