1. The effect, on the subglottic pressure and on the emitted orientation sounds, of selectively cutting nerves to various laryngeal muscles of the Big Brown Bat,Eptesicus fuscus, was studied. 2. Bilateral inferior laryngeal neurotomy caused no change in the repetition rate, duration, initial frequency or bandwidth of downward sweeping frequency modulated (FM) pulses, but after this treatment mean subglottic pressure at pulse onset was lowered 8 to 16 cm H2O and the mean peak pulse intensity was… CONTINUE READING
