Orienting responses and vocalizations produced by microstimulation in the superior colliculus of the echolocating bat, Eptesicus fuscus
An echolocating bat actively controls the spatial acoustic information that drives its behavior by directing its head and ears and by modulating the spectro-temporal structure of its outgoing sonarExpand

Neurobiology of echolocation in bats
Echolocating bats (sub-order: Microchiroptera) form a highly successful group of animals, comprising approximately 700 species and an estimated 25% of living mammals. Many echolocating bats areExpand

Vocal Premotor Activity in the Superior Colliculus
Chronic neural recordings were taken from the midbrain superior colliculus (SC) of echolocating bats while they were engaged in one of two distinct behavioral tasks: virtual target amplitudeExpand

Optimal Local Estimates of Visual Motion in a Natural Environment.
Many organisms use visual signals to estimate motion, and these estimates typically are biased. Here, we ask whether these biases may reflect physical rather than biological limitations. Using aExpand

Audiomotor integration for active sensing in the echolocating bat, Eptesicus fuscus
TLDR
Echolocating bats probe the environment with sonar signals that change as they seek, pursue and intercept insect prey on the wing. Expand

Encoding of Yaw in the Presence of Distractor Motion: Studies in a Fly Motion Sensitive Neuron
TLDR
We use combined rotations about different axes to study how H1, a wide-field motion-sensitive neuron, encodes preferred yaw motion in the presence of stimuli not aligned with its preferred direction. Expand
