Super-Sensory Hearing: Bushcrickets' Hearing Organs Could Lead to New Technologies in Acoustic Sensors Research, University of Bristol and University of Lincoln Study

Published: Nov 19, 2012

The discovery of a previously unidentified hearing organ in the South American bushcrickets' ear could pave the way for technological advancements in bio-inspired acoustic sensors research, including medical imaging and hearing aid development. Researchers from the University of Bristol and University of Lincoln discovered the missing piece of the jigsaw in the understanding of the process of energy transformation in the 'unconventional' ears of the bushcrickets (or katydids).
