In the short-tailed fruit bat (Carollia perspicillata), the auditory cortex was localized autoradiographically and studied electrophysiologically in detail by using metal microelectrodes and 10-ms tone stimuli. Because, in the weakly-anaesthetized preparation, neuronal responses to pure-tones were even found throughout the non-primary auditory cortex,(More)
High intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) is a novel method which offers the non-invasive ablation of tissues without harming overlying organs or skin. It has been introduced successfully in urology for the ablation of prostatic hyperplasia and seems to be promising in the treatment of uterine fibroids. In this study we aimed to examine the feasibility and(More)
Based on neuroanatomical findings it was hypothesized that an area in the bat frontal cortex is part of a sensorimotor feedback loop and probably important to goal-directed behaviors guided by auditory information. The present report describes the basic stimulus preferences and response properties of neurons from this area in the short-tailed fruit bat(More)
