English term or phrase:steady stream
(Research on sharks' sensor systems):
.... In 1938 Alexander Sand succeeded in amplifying and recording nerve pulses running from ampullae of Lorenzini to the brain [of a shark]. He saw that impulses shot down the nerve in a steady stream but that certain stimuli caused the rate to increase or decrease suddenly. He noticed, that the organs responded to touch or pressure, but he found that the firing rate also rose when cooled.
Что за поток? Может акулу подвергали воздействию равномерного (постоянное давление и направление?)потока воды (воздуха)? Как же этот поток "отключает" нерв?
