Classification of natural textures in echolocation.
Through echolocation, a bat can perceive not only the position of an object in the dark; it can also recognize its 3D structure. A tree, however, is a very complex object; it has thousands ofExpand

Inhibiting the Inhibition: A Neuronal Network for Sound Localization in Reverberant Environments
The precedence effect describes the phenomenon whereby echoes are spatially fused to the location of an initial sound by selectively suppressing the directional information of lagging sounds (echoExpand

Linking the sender to the receiver: vocal adjustments by bats to maintain signal detection in noise
Short-term adjustments of signal characteristics allow animals to maintain reliable communication in noise. Noise-dependent vocal plasticity often involves simultaneous changes in multipleExpand

The effect of preceding sonar emission on temporal integration in the bat, Megaderma lyra
The present study investigated whether and to which extent temporal integration in bats is influenced by echolocation behavior. One way to quantify temporal integration is to measure the detectionExpand

Discovering Your Inner Bat: Echo–Acoustic Target Ranging in Humans
Echolocation is typically associated with bats and toothed whales. To date, only few studies have investigated echolocation in humans. Moreover, these experiments were conducted with real objects inExpand
