Latest Neuroethology Stories
A new species of electric fish has been discovered in the murky waters of the upper Mazaruni River in South America.
Convergent evolution – the evolution of similar traits in drastically different types of creatures – is widespread not just at the physical level but also at the genetic level, according to new research published in this week’s edition of the journal Nature.
Humans can learn to use echolocation to navigate and to find objects, according to new research appearing in the latest edition of the biology journal Proceedings of the Royal Society B.
The larger the moth, the better hearing senses it needs if it wants to avoid its worst enemy, the bat.
A recently rediscovered species of bushcricket uses elastic energy and wing movement to reach high ultrasonic frequencies involving sound levels of about 110dB -- comparable to that of a power saw.
"Hawkmoths have evolved different ways of avoiding bats - I can’t even explain how amazing this system is, it is just fascinating," said one researcher.
Researchers have developed a new algorithm that makes it possible to map the shape and dimensions of a room using just a few microphones and a snap of the fingers.
Weakly electric fish spend their lives bathed in their own internally generated mild electric field, interpreting perturbations in the field as objects pass through and when communicating with members of their own species through high frequency electric 'chirps'.
Researchers from the University of Southern Denmark (SDU) have determined why harbor porpoise are doing so well in coastal and busy waters.
A new study led by the University of Southampton, however, now shows that they have the potential to use echolocation, similar to that of bats and dolphins, to determine the location of an object.
