Bat study could lead to better hearing loss treatment12th May 2010
UK researchers have said that studies into how dolphins and bats "echo-locate" using sound could let people with hearing implants hear "in stereo".
The Biologically Inspired Acoustic Systems (BIAS) project is headed by Professor Robert Allen from the University of Southampton. He said: "Colleagues at Leeds University have produced casts of bat heads and we're able to bounce sound off them to see what happens and to try to understand how the head shape affects the echoes received at the ears."
