Crickets provide a useful model to study neural processing of sound frequency. Sound frequency is one parameter that crickets use to discriminate between conspecific signals and sounds made by predators, yet little is known about how frequency is represented at the level of auditory receptors. In this paper, we study the physiological properties of auditory receptor fibers (ARFs) by making single-unit recordings in the cricket Teleogryllus oceanicus. Characteristic frequencies (CFs) of ARFs are… CONTINUE READING
