Echolocating bats Our current experiments aim to advance our understanding of how sensory information is processed, organized, and integrated with motor programs to permit perceptually-guided behavior. The echolocating bat presents an excellent model system for this line of research, because this animal actively probes the environment with the acoustic signals that guide its behavior. Thus, we can readily identify biologically relevant sounds, and selectively manipulate the features of these sounds to study basic processes of auditory information processing and adaptive behaviors. Work in the lab includes research on auditory perception, adaptive motor control, and the neural mechanisms supporting sensorimotor integration.
