• bat's
  • To avoid deafening themselves, whenever a bat makes an echolocation emission, a small muscle in the bat's middle ear (the stapedius muscle) clamps down on small bones called ossicles, which normally amplify sounds between the ear drum and the cochlea. (wikipedia.org)
  • objects
  • Echolocation may be more effective for detecting objects underwater than light-based vision is on land. (jrank.org)
  • Ironically, the proof for the vision-like qualities of echolocation came from blind echolocators wrongly judging how heavy objects of different sizes felt. (jagran.com)
  • The experiment demonstrated that echolocators experience a "size-weight illusion" when they use their echolocation to get a sense of how big objects are, in just the same way as sighted people do when using their normal vision. (jagran.com)
  • Additionally, echolocation allows the odontocete to easily discern the difference between objects that are different in material composition, even if visually identical, by their different densities. (wikipedia.org)
  • blind
  • The blind man leading the blind to see - how echolocation is redefining our understanding of vision. (abc.net.au)
  • Some blind people use echolocation to assess their environment and find their way around," said psychological scientist Gavin Buckingham of Heriot-Watt University in Scotland. (jagran.com)
  • animal
  • With echolocation the bat or other animal can see not only where it's going but can also see how big another animal is, what kind of animal it is, and other features as well. (wikia.com)
  • uses
  • This no-contact-necessary sensor uses echolocation technologies to track your breathing, heart rate, sleep cycle, and more from your nightstand, then compiles that data to give you personalized suggestions on how to maximize your snooze time. (merriam-webster.com)
  • It uses echolocation. (wikipedia.org)
  • album
  • This past January, At The Drive-In/Mastodon/Queens Of The Stone Age supergroup Gone Is Gone released their album Echolocation , and today they share visuals for the title track. (stereogum.com)
  • series
  • Recorded under the Hyperion bridge in Los Angeles's Atwater Village, 'Echolocations: River' is the second piece in a series of short films and recordings documenting site specific compositions. (thunderpussy.com)
  • It was recorded inside the Coyote Gulch canyons of Utah, and is intended as the first in a five-part Echolocations series. (wikipedia.org)
  • Burst pulses consisted of relatively short click series averaging 45 ± 54 clicks with decreasing repetition rate and longer inter-click interval that were less likely to be associated with regular echolocation and the jerk signal. (biologists.org)
  • sounds
  • Archival tags were placed on free-ranging Grampus griseus to quantify and discriminate between pulsed sounds used for echolocation-based foraging and those used for communication. (biologists.org)
  • ability
  • Those few who develop even crude echolocation would have a significant advantage, and would provide an evolutionary toe-hold into further refinement of the ability. (theness.com)
