The present study examines the echolocation calls and auditory responses of single neurons in the inferior colliculus (IC) of Pipistrellus abramus (Microchiroptera: Vespertilionidae). The data showed that there was a neurophysiological correlation of the auditory response properties with echolocation calls in IC neurons. The echolocation calls of P. abramus were broad-band swept from 86.6 to 43.2 kHz. The ending frequencies of the first harmonics which centered around 40 (average, 43.2; range… CONTINUE READING
