sensorimotor mapping and oropharyngeal reflexes in goldfish, carassius auratus.the vagal lobe of goldfish and some carps is a laminated, specialized lobe of the midmedulla containing both primary sensory terminals and primary motor neurons. both the sensory and motor components are represented in the lobe in a matching, orotopic fashion, i.e. the oral cavity is mapped across the surface of the lobe. anatomical tracing studies reveal that the circuitry exists for a point-to-point reflex system in which the superficial sensory layers are mapped directly onto the underlying m ...20123334903
influence of isolation stress and inhibited protein biosynthesis on learning and memory in goldfish.goldfish, carassius auratus auratus l. (pisces, cyprinidae), were trained by different kinds of training procedures under the influence of cycloheximide or puromycin, two inhibitors of the protein biosynthesis. after active avoidance training in a shuttle box an apparent amnesia was found only when the fish were exposed to a one day lasting isolation stress prior to training. if the animals were accustomed to isolation over a period of 20 days the inhibitors did not affect memory formation. afte ...20133823175
