  • ALTHOUGH from a variety of behaviour work1–3 there must be a strong presumption that the tympanal organs of certain night-flying moths respond to airborne sounds, hitherto no direct physiological evidence on this point has been forthcoming. We have recently been able to record electrical responses in the tympanal nerves of certain moths in response to stimulation by airborne sounds, and these preliminary experiments have revealed certain features of interest in the responses of the organs.
