Although the central auditory pathway of mammals has been the subject of numerous anatomical studies, only a few anatomical investigations exist on the auditory pathway in echolocating bats. In contrast to this shortage of anatomical knowlege, a lot of neurophysiological data exist from different auditory nuclei. To bridge the gap between anatomical and neurophysiological data we investigated the central auditory pathway of the greater horseshoe bat.
