From spatial orientation to food acquisition in echolocating bats
Echolocation by Insect-Eating Bats
This article describes the echolocation behavior of insect-eating bats and shows how differing circumstances such as habitat type, foraging mode, and diet favor different signal types, and outlines the perceptual tasks that must be performed by foraging bats.
The acoustic startle response in rats—circuits mediating evocation, inhibition and potentiation
Bat guilds, a concept to classify the highly diverse foraging and echolocation behaviors of microchiropteran bats
The assignment of species living under similar constraints into guilds identifies patterns of community structure and helps to understand the factors that underlie the organization of highly diverse bat communities.
Role of nucleus accumbens dopamine D1 and D2 receptors in instrumental and Pavlovian paradigms of conditioned reward
The data support the idea that dopamine in the nucleus accumbens is necessary for instrumental response selection in the context of reward rather than for the mere motor performance of behavior or for the evaluation of the hedonic properties of rewarding stimuli.
The roles of echolocation and olfaction in two Neotropical fruit-eating bats, Carollia perspicillata and C. castanea, feeding on Piper
It is concluded from the bats' behavioral reaction to real and artificial fruit as well as from characteristic patterns in their echolocation behavior that during exploration flights, Carollia changes from primarily odor-oriented detection and initial localization of ripe fruit to a primarily echo-oriented final localization of the position of the fruit.
Factors governing prepulse inhibition and prepulse facilitation of the acoustic startle response in mice
Plasticity in echolocation signals of European pipistrelle bats in search flight: implications for habitat use and prey detection
An overlap-free “window” within which pipistrelles may detect potential prey and which allows predictions of minimum distances to prey and clutter-producing objects is proposed.
The echolocation and hunting behavior of Daubenton's bat, Myotis daubentoni
The echolocation and hunting behavior of Daubenton's bat (Myotis daubentoni) was studied in the field under completely natural conditions using a multiflash photographic system synchronized with high-speed tape recordings to corroborate the hypothesis that the minimum detection distance can be estimated from the sound duration during search flight.
Auditory fovea and Doppler shift compensation: adaptations for flutter detection in echolocating bats using CF-FM signals
The frequency range of the foveal areas with their flutter processing neurons overlaps exactly with the frequency range where DS compensating bats most likely receive echoes from fluttering insects, indicating that auditory fovea and DSC are adaptations for the detection and evaluation of insects flying in clutter.
