1. The little brown bat, Myotis lucifugus, employs biosonar pulses containing broadband frequency-modulated (FM) sounds of only one harmonic during the initial phases of echolocation. Neurons throughout the auditory cortex exhibit delay-dependent facilitation to artificial pulses and echoes at particular echo delays. Extracellular unit recordings of these(More)
1. Spectral sensitivity was examined in delaysensitive neurons in the auditory cortex of the awake FM bat, Myotis lucifugus. FM stimuli sweeping 60 kHz downward in 4 ms were used as simulated pulse-echo pairs to measure delay-dependent responses. At each neuron's best delay, the pulse and/or echo were divided into 4 FM quarters (Ist, IInd, IIIrd, and IVth),(More)
