The report is the second paper in a series of three on 'Aspects of Migration and Orientation in Pacific Salmon'. The EEG is evaluated as a research tool for the study of homing. It is concluded that the analysis of the EEG is complicated by responses resulting from recent exposure to odors and by responses to non-specific stimulatory products. The EEG responses are not always directly related to behavioral responses. The EEG technique is useful for detecting differences in responses to specific substances. The EEG technique has been used to show that salmon can respond to morpholine 18 months from the time of last exposure to this chemical; therefore, a long-term memory of this odor is hypothesized.
