The Heiligenberg Lab intro

Dr. Walter Heiligenberg ran his lab from 1974 until his sudden and tragic death in September, 1994. Walter Heiligenberg and the members of his lab studied weakly electric fish. The gymotiform fish are found throughout central and South America, as far north as Guatemala and as far south as Argentina. The electric fish populations are most abundant and diverse in the Amazon Basin.

The Heiligenberg Lab is located at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, Hubbs Hall, with a beautiful the view of the Pacific Ocean.

At this time, Dr. T.H. Bullock is overseeing the Heiligenberg grants and advising students.
