Development of echolocation calls in the mustached bat, Pteronotus parnellii.
Adult mustached bats employ Doppler-sensitive sonar to hunt fluttering prey insects in acoustically cluttered habitats. The echolocation call consists of 4-5 harmonics, each composed of a longExpand

Two-Toned Echolocation Calls from Molossus molossus in Cuba
Molossus molossus from Cuba uses narrowband search signals that typically are emitted in a series of pairs with a signal of lower frequency (mean peak frequency = 34.1 kHz) followed by a signal ofExpand

Ultrastructure of the horseshoe Bat's organ of corti. II. Transmission electron microscopy
The fine structure of the organ of Corti was investigated in the echolocating horseshoe bat (Rhinolophus rouxi) by transmission electron microscopy. Particular emphasis was placed on the receptorExpand

Lightmicroscopic Observations on Cochlear Development in Horseshoe Bats (Rhinolophus rouxi)
In horseshoe bats, the enhanced frequency selectivity within a narrow frequency range around the CF-component of the echolocation call is established in the cochlea (review: Neuweiler et al., 1980;Expand

Postnatal maturation of primary auditory cortex in the mustached bat, Pteronotus parnellii.
The primary auditory cortex (AI) of adult Pteronotus parnellii features a foveal representation of the second harmonic constant frequency (CF2) echolocation call component. In the correspondingExpand

The Development of a Single Frequency Place in the Mammalian Cochlea: The Cochlear Resonance in the Mustached Bat Pteronotus parnellii
Cochlear microphonic potentials (CMs) were recorded from the sharply tuned, strongly resonant auditory foveae of 1- to 5-week-old mustached bats that were anesthetized with Rompun and Ketavet. TheExpand

High‐resolution three‐dimensional imaging of the lateral plasma membrane of cochlear outer hair cells by atomic force microscopy
The outer hair cells (OHCs) from the mammalian organ of Corti are assumed to enhance the sensitivity and the selectivity of the cochlea via an electromotile response to sound stimulation. These OHCExpand

A tectorial membrane fovea in the cochlea of the mustached bat
In the mammal ian cochlea, the tector ial membrane serves as an anchor for displacement of stereocilia of the sensory hair cells [1]. Its role in cochlear frequency tuning, however, still remainsExpand
