ECE Faculty Contribute to New Study on Echolocating Bats


A new paper by Professor Cynthia Moss (Psychology/ISR), Associate Professor Timothy Horiuchi (ECE/ISR), Professor P.S. Krishnaprasad (ECE/ISR), and Ph.D. student Kaushik Ghose finds that bats use a strategy much like that of a guided missiles to track and catch their prey. Their paper, titled "Echolocating Bats Use a Nearly Time-Optimal Strategy to Intercept Prey," appears in the May issue of PLoS Biology.

Visitors can read the paper online at the PLoS Biology website.
