Investigating range resolution 2.0
Aktualisiert: 20. Okt. 2020
I am very happy that our newest paper has been accepted in the Journal of Experimental Biology! Many bats forage among vegetation where prey and leaves are positioned right behind one another. We know that bats excel at determining absolute distance with specialised neurons that measure the delay between outgoing call and returning echo. In this new publication we show that bats also possess distance resolution. For the experiment we simulated a virtual jungle where bats had to echolocate into a "gap" between pieces of vegetation to detect their food reward. Check out the details here!
