Biosonar navigation above water II: exploiting mirror images
Journal of Neurophysiology
As in vision, acoustic signals can be reflected by a smooth surface creating an acoustic mirror image. Water bodies represent the only naturally occurring horizontal and acoustically smooth surfaces. Echolocating bats flying over smooth water bodies encounter echo-acoustic mirror images of objects above the surface. Here, we combined an electrophysiological approach with a behavioral experimental paradigm to investigate whether bats can exploit echo-acoustic mirror images for navigation and howdoi:10.1152/jn.00264.2014 pmid:25411457 fatcat:eujwujtj5vffrolhhzep422z4u
