Tympanal travelling waves in migratory locusts
SUMMARY Hearing animals, including many vertebrates and insects, have the capacity to analyse the frequency composition of sound. In mammals, frequency analysis relies on the mechanical response ofExpand

Keeping up with Bats: Dynamic Auditory Tuning in a Moth
Many night-flying insects evolved ultrasound sensitive ears in response to acoustic predation by echolocating bats . Noctuid moths are most sensitive to frequencies at 20-40 kHz , the lower range ofExpand

Mechanics of a `simple' ear: tympanal vibrations in noctuid moths
SUMMARY Anatomically, the ears of moths are considered to be among the simplest ears found in animals. Microscanning laser vibrometry was used to examine the surface vibrations of the entire tympanalExpand

Synchrony through twice-frequency forcing for sensitive and selective auditory processing
Male mosquitoes detect flying females using antennal hearing organs sensitive to nanoscale mechanical displacements and that harbor motile mechanosensory neurons. The mechanisms supporting neuronalExpand

A Low-Frequency Dual-Band Operational Microphone Mimicking the Hearing Property of Ormia Ochracea
This paper introduces a directional MEMS microphone designed for hearing aid applications appropriate to low-frequency hearing impairment, inspired by the hearing mechanism of a fly, the female OrmiaExpand

Hearing ability decreases in ageing locusts
ABSTRACT Insects display signs of ageing, despite their short lifespan. However, the limited studies on senescence emphasize longevity or reproduction. We focused on the hearing ability of ageingExpand

3D printed microneedle patches using stereolithography (SLA) for intradermal insulin delivery.
3D printed microneedle arrays were fabricated using a biocompatible resin through stereolithography (SLA) for transdermal insulin delivery. Microneedles were built by polymerising consecutive layersExpand

Tuning the drum: the mechanical basis for frequency discrimination in a Mediterranean cicada
SUMMARY Cicadas are known to use sound to find a mate. While the mechanism employed by male cicadas to generate loud calling songs has been described in detail, little information exists to explainExpand

Mechanical phase shifters for coherent acoustic radiation in the stridulating wings of crickets: the plectrum mechanism
SUMMARY Male crickets produce stridulatory songs using engaged tegmina (forewings): a plectrum on the left sweeps along a tooth row on the right. During stridulation, the plectrum moves across theExpand

Time-resolved tympanal mechanics of the locust
A salient characteristic of most auditory systems is their capacity to analyse the frequency of sound. Little is known about how such analysis is performed across the diversity of auditory systemsExpand
