Acoustical analysis of the auditory system of the cricket Teleogryllus commodus (Walker)

Fletcher, Neville H.; Thwaites, Suszanne


The basic auditory physiology of crickets, and particularly of Teleogryllus commodus (Walker) is examined and its behavior simulated by electrical analog networks, beginning from the simplest possible model and progressing by stages to the full system found in the real insect. It is found that the attenuation of sound in the auditory trachea plays a crucial role in the mechanism for directional hearing in even the simplest model and that the tracheal diameter is in fact appropriate to produce...[Show more]
