Weakly electric fish possess electrosensory neural systems that are dedicated to detect microsecond time differences between sensory signals. Many features of this timing system, such as electroreceptor encoding, time-locked responses, and time-comparator neural circuit, are shared by closely related as well as distantly related electric fishes. The appearance and location of the time-comparator neural structures, however, are different among species. The timing systems of different electric fish species are compared.
