The inferior colliculus (IC) of the big brown bat (Eptesicus fuscus) contains specialized neurons that respond exclusively to highly specific spectrotemporal patterns such as sinusoidally frequency modulated (SFM) signals or directional frequency modulated sweeps (FM). Other specialized cells with I-shaped frequency response areas (FRAs) are tuned to very narrow frequency bands (1-2 kHz) in an amplitude-tolerant manner. In contrast, non-specialized neurons respond to any stimulus with energy in… CONTINUE READING
