Many people may ask the question: why study such an exotic sensory system such as the electrosensation in electric fish? Could it be because of the natural curiosity that we as human’s exhibit, or maybe because we are intrigued by the various morphological and physiological adaptations that are seen across a plethora of environments? Well, more evolved organisms have achieved their higher traits not from new mechanisms that spontaneously appeared, but from old mechanisms that they share with simpler organisms. Therefore, it is through the study of simpler process that humans hope to better understand their own complex process. Electric fish have perfected the analysis of temporal information and have shown that they can very easily decipher…

The giant catfish is uncommon yet broadly presented through the Mekong Basin. Mature fish seem to be found in major channels of the Mekong River and its tributaries. Juvenile fish seem to stick around wetland areas of the Mekong Basin. In the dry season mature fish migrate vast distances up river and start spawning when the rains arrive. The eggs and hatchlings are being transported downstream where juveniles may scatter into floodplains and other wetland zones. Not much information is…

British officer William Bourne told of a wooden frame vassal closed and waterproof. In 1904 the French built the first submarine to use a gas engine and have a electric engine below. Then the United States soon fall after them. These submarines were even used in World War II as U-boat
