Electric fish
Electric fish
A school of weakly electric fish (Eigenmannia) that uses an electrosensory system to locate objects and orient in their environment. Electric fish perform a jamming avoidance response when being exposed to a conspecific with a similar electric signal. Eigenmannia forms schools, so thereis a good chance of encountering conspecifics. Photo by Jörg Oestreich.
Hawkmoth neurons
Hawkmoth neurons
Flight motoneurons (MN5) of tobacco hornworm (Manduca sexta) at three developmental stages: larval stage in gold, pupal stage 1 in green and adult stage in purple. Their respective dendritic tree are aligned to the axo-dendritic junction, showing the dramatic changes in the architecture of MN5 during metamorphosis. Scale = 50 µm. Photo by Fred Libersat.
