Flying bat Photo by Steven Dear

Research in the Auditory Neuroethology Lab includes studies of auditory information processing, spatial perception, memory and sensorimotor integration. Using the echolocating bat as a model system, our work combines acoustical, psychophysical, theoretical and neurophysiological research, with the goal of developing integrative theories on brain-behavior relations.
