As slopes produce electricity

In the seas and oceans there are beings having surprising and amazing abilities to produce electricity. One of such creations is the electric slope.

How do slopes produce electricity?

All thanks to the special electric bodies which are in these beings. They arose both at freshwater, and at sea fishes. It is known that some of their fossil ancestors had the same bodies. The modern ichthyology totals more than 300 species of the different fishes having electric bodies. These bodies represent modified muscles. At any given "electrofishes" they differ in the location. For example, at slopes they represent pochkovidny formations.

If to speak a simple language, then electric bodies of slopes are the peculiar mini-generators developing very decent charge of current. This charge will be enough for immobilizing not only fish, but also the person! There are experts who claim that slopes can develop for once tension in 300 volts. Electric bodies are located in back and belly parts of a body of this "electrofish". They can be compared to the galvanic or electric battery.

Each of such bodies consists of the numerous electric plates collected in columns. These are modified nervous, muscle and ferruterous cells. Between their membranes the potential difference is also generated. Electric bodies are innervated by special branches of the yazykoglotochny, facial and wandering nerves which, in turn, approach an electronegative side of above-mentioned plates.

In what cases do slopes produce electricity?

These creations use the unique electrogene properties in two cases: if they are threatened by any danger, or during hunting (production search). It is curious that slopes do not suffer from the electric discharge released by them. It is explained by special "isolation" with which their mother nature awarded. By the way, not only electric slopes, but also some other their types which are not relating to family of electric have electrogene properties: bodies of these beings are located only on a tail. Those fishermen who had imprudence on themselves to feel all force of influence of this "electrofish", remained extremely dissatisfied. According to them, the electric shock from an electric slope is followed by long drowsiness, a shiver in legs, loss of sensitivity, numbness of the upper extremities. It is curious that such surprising electrogene property of these creations was successfully operated in Ancient Greece. Greeks used these wonderful fishes for anesthesia during any surgery, or at birth.
