Neural Mechanisms Of Vocal Control In Bats.

Contact Person: Gerd Schuller (schuller@zi.biologie.uni-muenchen.de)

Materials and Methods

Horseshoe bats from Sri Lanka and mustached bats from the Caribics were used for the experiments. Preparation and details of electrical or pharmacological microstimulation, as well as on lesioning, are described elsewhere (Pillat and Schuller,1998). Sound recording and playback of Doppler-shifted echoes were either performed electronically (double heterodyning technique)or tested on a swing. For tracer experiments WGA-HRP was routinely used and the conventional processing techniques adapted to the bat were applied. All anatomical evaluations were referred to brain atlasses of the respective species (Radtke-Schuller, unpublished) and provided thus a high interindividual comparability.
