... directional otolithic ears in vertebrate evolutionary history. However, fossil evidence indicates that the water-adapted ear of early terrestrial tetrapods lacked specialized peripheral structures to transduce sound pressure (e.g. tympana). Therefore, early terrestrial hearing should have required nontympanic...

...Tanya B. Lauridsen; Christian Brandt; Jakob Christensen-Dalsgaard ABSTRACT Hearing sensitivity has been extensively investigated, often by measuring the auditory brainstem response (ABR). ABR measurements are relatively non-invasive, easy to reproduce, and allow the assessment of sensitivity when...

..., 2009b ; Bose et al., 2018 ). Reproductive females rely on their sense of hearing to identify and locate conspecific ‘singing’ males. Females exhibit a number of reproductive state-dependent changes in their auditory systems that enhance their ability to detect potential mates. Sisneros and Bass (2003...

.... Note also that at most frequencies, ratios were greater at the lower sound level of 50 dB SPL. Finally, a prediction was derived from these data about the ITDs that the chicken should hear when a sound source originates in the free field from 90 deg to one side. For this, a value for the maximal...

...Alexandra V. Batchelor; Rachel I. Wilson ABSTRACT Drosophila melanogaster hear with their antennae: sound evokes vibration of the distal antennal segment, and this vibration is transduced by specialized mechanoreceptor cells. The left and right antennae vibrate preferentially in response to sounds...
