SummaryA conditioned heart rate and muscular activity response was used to measure behavioural audiograms inRhinolophus ferrumequinum. The audiograms are very similar to the evoked potential “on” response threshold curves. They show a low frequency roll off of 30 dB per octave below 15 kHz and three areas of low threshold with SPLs of about 0 dB separated by two insensitivity peaks with SPLs of 25–30 dB. The sharply tuned threshold minima above 80 kHz (Q-values between 45–85) are followed by a… Expand

Hearing in the FM-bat Phyllostomus discolor: a behavioral audiogram
TLDR
Absolute auditory thresholds of six adult lesser spear-nosed bats Phyllostomus discolor were determined in a two-alternative forced-choice procedure and the shape of the average audiogram is characterized by two sensitivity peaks and a pronounced increase of thresholds towards the limits of the tested frequency range.

Psychophysical and neurophysiological hearing thresholds in the bat Phyllostomus discolor
TLDR
The data suggest that P. discolor has considerably better absolute auditory thresholds than estimated previously and is compared to other phyllostomid bats and differences are discussed. Expand

Behavioral responses of the frog-eating bat,Trachops cirrhosus, to sonic frequencies
TLDR
The frog-eating bat, Trachops cirrhosus (Phyllostomatidae), locates frogs by using the frogs' vocalizations and shows a behavioral response to constant frequencies in the sonic range, which is consistent with audiograms of other bats that have been tested in this frequency range. Expand
Peripheral auditory tuning for fine frequency analysis by the CF-FM bat,Rhinolophus ferrumequinum
TLDR
Peripheral auditory neurons with the best frequency between 77 and 87 kHz showed not only on- Responses, but also off-responses to tonal stimuli, probably due to a mechanical transient occurring in the cochlea at the cessation of a tone burst. Expand

TLDR
An electronic target simulator was used to produce artificial echoes for the echolocating bat, Rhinolophus ferrumequinum, and it changed the frequency of the constant‐frequency portions of its outgoing orientation sounds to restore the CF portions of returning echoes to the bat's preferred frequency.

TLDR
Comparisons between discrimination performance and autocorrelation functions of echolocation sounds used in the discriminations suggest that these bats possess some neural equivalent of a matched‐filter, ideal sonar receiver which functionally cross‐correlates a replica of the outgoing signal with the returning echo to detect the echo and determine its arrival time.
