1. The praying mantis possesses a single ear located in the ventral midline of the metathorax. We have studied the mantis' auditory nervous system using both extracellular and intracellular techniques and have identified anatomically and physiologically a mirror-image pair of interneurons (MR-501-T3) in the metathoracic ganglion that mediates ultrasonic hearing. 2. MR-501-T3 is tuned broadly to ultrasound with best sensitivity (55–60 dB SPL) between 25 and 45 kHz. Its tuning matches closely… CONTINUE READING
