Electric Organs in the Strong-Voltage Electric Eel

Record date: Dec 11, 2013

Lindsay Traeger, Graduate Student, Department of Biochemistry, UW-Madison, discusses the electric eel, a freshwater fish from South America, which can generate voltage using three electric organs in its tail made up of electrocytes. Understanding the complex traits of electrocytes may help with the development of biobatteries.
