... such as different muscle tensions. Summary: Noctuid moth wing position affects neural hearing sensitivity. No significant differences in eardrum movement occur; therefore, differences are hypothesized to be due to internal factors such as muscle tension. Neurophysiology Tympanum Biomechanics Insect...

... of the tympanum driven by sound. These measurements reveal that the nanoscale motion of the tympanal membrane is over a magnitude greater than that of the apodeme. Furthermore, the apodeme acts as an additional mechanical frequency filter, enhancing that of the tympanal ridge, narrowing the frequency band...

...Jérôme Sueur; James F. C. Windmill; Daniel Robert SUMMARY In cicadas, the tympanum is anatomically intricate and employs complex vibrations as a mechanism for auditory frequency analysis. Using microscanning laser Doppler vibrometry, the tympanal mechanics of Cicada orni can be characterized...

... element of the tympanum that is a link to the receptor cells, undergoes mechanical vibrations reminiscent of a travelling wave. In effect, the frequency for which the maximum deflection amplitude is observed regularly decreases from the apex to the base of the ridge. It is also shown that whilst female...

... the intertympanal bridge occurs during the mechanical stimulation of only one tympanum, i.e. in the absence of any acoustic input to the system, thus demonstrating the pure mechanical nature of coupling (as opposed to acoustic coupling) via the intertympanal bridge ( Robert et al., 1998 ). It has also been...
