Pulses, patterns and paths: neurobiology of acoustic behaviour in crickets

  title={Pulses, patterns and paths: neurobiology of acoustic behaviour in crickets},
  author={Berthold Hedwig},

Crickets use acoustic communication for pair formation. Males sing with rhythmical movements of their wings and the mute females approach the singing males by phonotaxis. Females walking on a trackball rapidly steer towards single sound pulses when exposed to split-song paradigms. Their walking path emerges from consecutive reactive steering responses, which show no temporal selectivity. Temporal pattern recognition is tuned to the species-specific syllable rate and gradually changes the gain… CONTINUE READING
