2021 bioRxiv   pre-print
Fungi exhibit action-potential like spiking activity. Up to date most electrical activity of oyster fungi has been characterised in sufficient detail. It remains unclear if there are any patterns of electrical activity specific only for a certain set of species or if all fungi share the same 'language' of electrical signalling. We use pairs of differential electrodes to record extracellular electrical activity of the antler-like sporocarps of the polypore fungus Ganoderma resinaceum. The
