. The stereotyped response of the female Leptophyes punctatissima Bosc. to a representation of the male call has been taken as a behavioural measure to determine the directional sensitivity of monaurally deafened animals. By using the responses of an auditory interneuron (T-fibre), the directional sensitivity could also be measured neurophysiologically on the same preparation. Thus it was possible to compare directly both a behavioural and a neurophysiological polar directional plot for an… CONTINUE READING
