Properties of echo delay-tuning receptive fields in the inferior colliculus of the mustached bat.


One role of the inferior colliculus (IC) in bats is to create neuronal delay-tuning, which is used for the estimation of target distance in the echolocating bat's auditory system. In this study, we describe response properties of IC delay-tuned neurons of the mustached bat (Pteronotus parnellii) and compare it with those of delay-tuned neurons of the… (More)
