"I'm very interested in how humans and animals perceive the world—that's the big picture. I just happen to use the echolating bat as a model because it can give us information that other animal models don't."
Cindy Moss, an expert on how bats use echolocation to navigate their way through the world, arrived this past summer at Johns Hopkins after 19 years at the University of Maryland. In what she calls her bat lab, a suite of rooms in Ames’ basement, she films the bats in flight with high-speed cameras and uses sensitive audio equipment to record the high frequency calls bats make with their voice boxes or tongues, bouncing the sounds off objects and using the feedback to alter their flight paths accordingly.
