The bats are back in the news. 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 (ISR Outstanding Graduate Student, 2004) finds that bats use a strategy much like that employed by guided missiles to track and catch their prey. Their paper appears in the May issue of PLoS Biology. ISR faculty are also mentioned as researchers in this study. | Read the PLoS Biology paper | Read the UMD press release |
