Summary1.Prothoracic auditory interneurons in the primitive orthopteran Cyphoderris monstrosa (Ensifera: Haglidae) were characterized morphologically and physiologically, using intracellular recording and staining.2.Auditory interneurons with similar morphologies to several classes of identified cells in crickets were discovered. These cell types corresponded to omega, AN1, DN1, and TN1 cells of Gryllidae. Several novel cell types were also discovered, including a second ascending cell with a…

TLDR
The auditory S-neurones have dendritic arborizations in all three ganglia (prothoracic, subesophageal, and brain) compared to the vibratory (V) and vibrosensitive (VS) neurones, which has dendrites almost only in the brain.
Vibratory interneurons in the non-hearing cave cricket indicate evolutionary origin of sound processing elements in Ensifera.
TLDR
The central projections of the foreleg TO of the cave cricket are examined to conclude that T. neglectus interneurons are morphologically primitive with respect to those of hearing taxa, and significant changes in the dendritic structure/synaptic connectivity have taken place during the evolution of the most specialised first-order auditory interneuron of Ensifera.
Processing of auditory information in insects
TLDR
The aim of this review is to summarize and compare the present concepts of auditory processing by relating behavioral performance to known neuronal mechanisms, and demonstrates that closely related species often use different combinations of temporal parameters in their recognition systems.
Effects of pharmacological treatment and photoinactivation on the directional responses of an insect neuron.

TLDR
The results demonstrate that the mirror-image partners of the omega neuron mutually inhibit each other in bush crickets--as in crickets and this mutual inhibition is PTX-sensitive.
Sound signalling in orthoptera
TLDR
This review considers recent research in physiology and the links with related areas of acoustic work on the Orthoptera, a multidisciplinary area of research with a strong physiological contribution.
Stay tuned: active amplification tunes tree-cricket ears to track temperature-dependent song frequency
TLDR
It is shown that tree crickets harness active processes to ensure that auditory tuning remains matched to conspecific song frequency, despite changing environmental conditions and signal characteristics.
Stay tuned: active amplification tunes tree cricket ears to track temperature-dependent song frequency
TLDR
It is shown that tree crickets harness active processes to ensure that auditory tuning remains matched to conspecific song frequency, despite changing environmental conditions and signal characteristics.
Variability of spike trains and the processing of temporal patterns of acoustic signals—problems, constraints, and solutions
TLDR
In this review, problems caused by spike train variability and counterstrategies are exemplified for the processing of acoustic signals in orthopteran insects, expecting to find solutions that are stripped to the computational basics.

TLDR
The auditory system of C. monstrosa is a pressure receiver, adapted to low frequency sensitivity, which suggests an auditory system adapted to another function in addition to intraspecific communication.
Auditory interneurones in the prothoracic ganglion of the cricket,Gryllus bimaculatus
TLDR
Both anatomical and physiological properties indicate that the HF1AN may belong to the neuronal circuits controlling evasive behavior and/or arousal of the cricket.
Auditory interneurons in the prothoracic ganglion of the cricket, gryllus bimaculatus deGeer
TLDR
The LSAN precisely reproduces the time-pattern of the calling song and accurately codes the absolute intensity of such signals, and it is suggested that the LSAN plays an important role in the location of singing conspecifics in the field.
Response properties of prothoracic, interganglionic, sound-activated interneurons in the cricketTeleogryllus oceanicus
TLDR
The response properties of nine prothoracic interneurons in the cricketTeleogryllus oceanicus are described; two of these have been studied previously in another species and the remaining seven are described here for the first time.
Insect hearing in the field
TLDR
It was concluded that the precise alternating pattern between two males is significantly affected by noise and a strong masking effect by biological noise on the perception of the conspecific signal within the afferent auditory pathway is revealed.
Auditory interneurons in the cricketTeleogryllus oceanicus: Physiological and anatomical properties
TLDR
The morphology and physiology of two acoustic interneurons in the prothoracic ganglion studied by the use of extracellular microelectrodes filled with cobalt chloride have been studied and the reliability of the relatively newextracellular cobalt staining procedure is discussed.
Functional development of the auditory system of the cricket,Teleogryllus commodus
TLDR
Peripheral receptors and some interneurons in the immature auditory system are, therefore, physiologically competent and must be independent of vibration characteristics of the tympanum and of acoustic resonance characteristics depending on the dimensions of the leg trachea.
Embryonic development and evolutionary origin of the Orthopteran auditory organs.
TLDR
The ontogenetic origin of these two types of auditory organs is described, comparative developmental studies are used to identify their segmental homologs, and on the basis of homology postulate their evolutionary origin.
Phonotaxis in flying crickets
  • T. Nolen, R. Hoy
  • Psychology, Biology
    Journal of Comparative Physiology A
  • 2004
TLDR
The steering responses of three species of field crickets were characterized during tethered flight using single tonepulses presented at carrier frequencies from 3–100 kHz to demonstrate that acoustically mediated steering in flying crickets is more diverse and more complex than previously thought.
The function of auditory neurons in cricket phonotaxis
TLDR
The activity of auditory receptor cells and prothoracic auditory neurons of the cricket was recorded intracellularly while the animal walked on a sphere or while passive movement was imposed on a foreleg to study the responses to auditory stimuli.
