Pitch discrimination in locusts
Sound stimulation of the tympanic organ of Locusta migratoria and Schistocerca gregaria initiates responses in the tympanic nerve and these in turn stimulate a few interneurones which ascend the ventral cord from the metathoracic ganglion to the brain. Some of the preparations show the following evidence of pitch discrimination. The response of the whole tympanic nerve to a pulsed note of low pitch cannot be made identical to the response to the same pulse at high pitch no matter how the...[Show more]
