About this book

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.

Reviews

From the book reviews:

“This is an outstanding neurophysiology textbook on the electrosensory, mechanosensory, and lateral line systems (LLS)_ of teleost and non-teleost fishes. … I recommend this book for biologists, fish researchers of cartilaginous and bony fish species, neurophysiologists, and for students interested in fish.” (Joseph J. Grenier, Amazon.com, April, 2015)
