  • Summary1.Seven species of paleotropical echolocating bats were studied in an effort to correlate differences in emitted orientation pulses with differences in neural analysis mechanisms. Major emphasis was on species of the genus Hipposideros, which emit extremely high frequencies in pulses consisting of a constant frequency for several msec followed by a fast downward sweep in frequency.2.Evoked potentials and single unit responses were recorded from the posterior colliculi and more peripheral… CONTINUE READING
