Behavior and Physiology of the Plainfin Midshipman

The midshipman and toadfishes have become important models for investigating neural and endocrine mechanisms of acoustic communication shared by all vertebrates (Fay &Simmons, 1999; Bass & McKibben, 2003; Bass, 2006; Forlano et al., 2007). 

The plainfin midshipman (Porichthys notatus Girard) has been the subject of previous investigations regarding its life history and bioacoustics, physiology of its vocal motor and auditory systems, and the effects of hormones on midshipman acoustic communication.
