Recording the brain activity of a free-flying bat

Researchers have developed a way to study the brain of a bat as it flies, recording for the first time what happens as an animal focuses its attention. This groundbreaking advance allows us to see what happens in the brains of naturally-behaving animals, uninhibited by laboratory constraints. Because bats share the same brain structure as all mammals, including humans, the achievement, deepens our understanding of what happens in the brain as we move through the world.
