The physiological characteristics of auditory receptor fibers (ARFs) of crickets, a model system for studying auditory behaviors and their neural mechanisms, are investigated. Unlike auditory receptor neurons of many animals, cricket ARFs fall into three distinct populations based on characteristic frequency (CF) [Imaizumi and Pollack, J. Neurosci. 19, 1508-1516 (1999)]. Two of these have CFs similar to the frequency component of communication signals or of ultrasound produced by predators, and… CONTINUE READING
