Some fish use electric signals to communicate and to locate prey. Join Cornell professor Carl Hopkins, an expert on these fishes from the African Nation of Gabon, as he introduces a group of freshman biology students to his research on mechanisms and uses of electric communication among fish.

Hopkins is the 2009 recipient of the prestigious CALS Edgerton Career Teaching Award and a faculty mentor in Cornell's introductory biology Exploration Program. Students in the program choose a topic of interest and participate in the research, working with lab equipment and gathering data in the labs of some of the top researchers in the country.
