Frequency Selectivity of Constant Latency Neurons in the Inferior Colliculus of Mexican Free-Tailed Bats
There are neurons in the inferior colliculus of the Mexican free-tailed bat, Tadarida brasiliensis mexicana, which are characterized by a highly stable discharge latency to frequency modulated (FM) signals. These phasic constant latency responders (pCLRs) are capable of accurately encoding the time interval between simulated orientation cries and echoes, and thus appear to be well suited for encoding target range.
