Comparative auditory neurophysiology of neotropical bats employing different echolocation signals

  title={Comparative auditory neurophysiology of neotropical bats employing different echolocation signals},
  author={Alan D. Grinnell},
  journal={Zeitschrift f{\"u}r vergleichende Physiologie},
1. Five species of neotropical bats, which emit echolocation pulses different than those employed by bats previously studied, were investigated in an attempt to find corresponding differences in mechanisms of neural analysis. Evoked potentials were recorded from the posterior colliculi and more peripheral levels in anesthetized specimens. 2. Each species was found to be most sensitive in approximately the same frequency range it uses in its emitted pulses: Chilonycteris rubiginosa at 63 kc/s… CONTINUE READING
